  1. virtio-9p: Introduces an option to specify the security model.

    Venkateswararao Jujjuri (JV) authored Anthony Liguori committed
    The new option is:
    -fsdev fstype,id=myid,path=/share_path/,security_model=[mapped|passthrough]
    -virtfs fstype,path=/share_path/,security_model=[mapped|passthrough],mnt_tag=tag
    In the case of mapped security model, files are created with QEMU user
    credentials and the client-user's credentials are saved in extended attributes.
    Whereas in the case of passthrough security model, files on the
    filesystem are directly created with client-user's credentials.
