AFAICS this is about this old bug report:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1336794

So yes, looks like this also requires changes to the 9pfs 'local' fs driver on
QEMU side:
https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2016-06/msg07586.html

Eric, Greg, would there be an easy way to establish QEMU test cases running
the 9pfs 'local' fs driver? Right now we only have 9pfs qtest cases for QEMU
which can only use the 'synth' driver, which is not helpful for such kind of
issues.

Best regards,
Christian Schoenebeck
