Thank you. The clipboard sharing working now. Do you have any idea for 
the mount issue? I suppose there is a way to share a specific directory 
between the guest and host like I did with vbox for example

What exact modules needed for this function?

The error message I've got this:

mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L hostshare /tmp/hostfiles
mount: special device hostshare does not exist

9pnet_virtio: no channels available
