Yes. This is similar to the PCI & USB Mapping. Nothing ensures that the
mapped device/directory is the same on the other host.

If the contents are not the same they will not be the same.
But this should not be a problem as long as nothing in a VM depends on
something in the virtiofs directory.
This is something the user should take care of.
Or am I missing something?

I didn't encounter any problems.

Since the VM has to be powered off to migrate, I assume the cache gets
cleared & written to disk when virtiofs stops.
