I spent a couple of days to investigate why sshfs/fuse doesn't work well with
procfs and sysfs. Just after my patch against fuse is ready almost, I found
fuse already supports such access by direct I/O. With parameter -o direct_io,
it could work well.

Here is an example to mount / from a guest os.
#sshfs -p 5551 -o direct_io localhost:/ guestmount

We can read files and write files if permission is ok.

I will go ahead to support multiple guest os instance statistics parsing.
