That would be quite a bit of work, both on the qemu side and for the guest OS.

It is possible (to e.g. have a hacked vfat driver that instead of passing
requests to the disk manager pass these requests directly to qemu and have qemu
translate it into native linux file accesses) but even if done well, its a
major hack.

Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
