[Libguestfs] Using SPDK as QEMU's rootfs disk && A patch for libguestfs to support SPDK



Hi guys,

During the last few weeks, I've been looking at how to use SPDK as QEMU's bootable rootfs disk.

I managed to boot up a SPDK rootfs disk by using OVMF UEFI boot-loader. And in order to deploy the guest OS before start-up(which has a unrecognizable filesystem to the host), I have written a small patch for the libguestfs. It was based on Redhat's CentOS libguestfs-1.36.10 RPM, hopefully somebody could add this SPDK support into the mainline code.

What I'm asking here is a new problem I encountered yesterday. When I increased the guest memory to more than 8GB, the guest kernel would crash at boot-up (see attached screen-shot). This issue would not be reproduced if I only use SPDK as the data disk.

Maybe there is something wrong with the boot-loader?

Thanks, Bob
