When using a virtfs root filesystem, the mount_tag needs to be set to
/dev/root. This can be done long-hand as

  -fsdev local,id=root,path=/path/to/rootfs,...
  -device virtio-9p-pci,fsdev=root,mount_tag=/dev/root

but the -virtfs shortcut cannot be used as it hard-codes the device identifier
to match the mount_tag, and device identifiers may not contain '/':

  $ qemu-system-x86_64 -virtfs local,path=/foo,mount_tag=/dev/root,security_model=passthrough
  qemu-system-x86_64: -virtfs local,path=/foo,mount_tag=/dev/root,security_model=passthrough: Parameter 'id' expects an identifier
  Identifiers consist of letters, digits, '-', '.', '_', starting with a letter.
  duplicate fsdev id: /dev/root

To support this case using -virtfs, we allow the device identifier to be
specified explicitly when the mount_tag is not suitable:

  -virtfs local,id=root,path=/path/to/rootfs,mount_tag=/dev/root,...

The indentation here looks wrong. (scripts/checkpatch.pl will catch
this kind of thing for you).

You're quite right; resent a fixed version.

Cheers,

Chris.
