Got this QEMU policy issue clarified on qemu-devel in the meantime.

Back on topic: I can lay the ground on QEMU side by establishing a test suite
for the 9p 'local' driver, including one test case ready to pass for this
particular unlinked-I/O bug discussed here.

But to be clear: since the proposed patch set is a non-trivial and old one
(2016), I currently don't have plans to handle the actual bug fix patches by
myself. So if anyone wants this unlinked issue to be fixed on QEMU side,
please dedust that patch set and send a v2 the common way to qemu-devel ML for
further review, and actually test them!

So if anybody wants to do that, let me know, so that I would prepare the test
suite in the meantime.

Best regards,
Christian Schoenebeck
