[libvirt] NBD server for libvirt domains using virDomainBlockPeek



This might be of interest to developers on this list.  I've written an
NBD server which can serve libvirt guest disks.  It uses the
virDomainBlockPeek API and so is necessarily read-only.

https://github.com/libguestfs/nbdkit
https://github.com/libguestfs/nbdkit/tree/master/plugins/libvirt

Example:

$ sudo ./src/nbdkit ./plugins/libvirt/.libs/libnbdkit-libvirt-plugin.so domain=f18x64 disk=vda -f -v

In another window:

$ guestfish --format=raw -a nbd://localhost -i

Welcome to guestfish, the guest filesystem shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems and disk images.

Type: 'help' for help on commands
      'man' to read the manual
      'quit' to quit the shell

Operating system: Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow)
