If your guest is a linux with 9p support compiled in you can use this:


You should only need the 'Starting the guest directly' and 'Mounting the
shared path' sections. The qemu options have to be added as `args:` entry
to /etc/pve/qemu-server/$VMID.conf, but note that when adding pci devices
without explicit pci slots qemu might end up auto-assigning it to a number
that other arguments with explicit slots use already, and error about conflicting
pci slots. (I wonder if we can avoid that by moving the args to the end in
our code...)
Anyway, you might wanna add `,bus=pci.0,addr=0x11` to the virtio-9p-pci
