With the current setup of kata, VM templating and virtio-fs are mutually exclusive (VM templating is enabled in qemu-lite and virtio-fs currently only with NEMU), but they will converge very soon.

Hi Stefan,

What happens if we specify share=on and share=off for different memory
file backends? Can virtio-fs only pick up the shared one?


Into something rich and strange.
