    Nevermind that running virtfs as a rootfs is a really dumb idea. You
    do now want to run a VM that has a rootfs that gets changed all the
    time behind your back.

    Running qemu -snapshot on the actual root block device is the only
    safe way to reuse the host installation, although it gets a bit
    complicated if people have multiple devices mounted into the namespace.
