Now there's a second whitelist, right before the vcpu starts. The second
whitelist is the same as the first one, except for exec() and select().

-netdev tap,downscript=/path/to/script requires exec() in the QEMU
shutdown code path.  Will this work with seccomp?

I actually don't know, but I'll test that as well. Can you run a test
with this patch and -netdev? I mean, if you're pointing that out you
might have a scenario already setup, right?


This uses exec() in net/tap.c.

I think if we're going to introduce a sandbox environment that restricts existing QEMU behavior, then we have to introduce a new argument to the -sandbox option. So for example, "-sandbox on" would continue to use the whitelist that allows everything in QEMU to work (or at least it should :). And something like "-sandbox on,strict=on" would use the whitelist + blacklist.

If this is acceptable though, then I wonder how we could go about adding new syscalls to the blacklist in future QEMU releases without regressing "-sandbox on,strict=on".

By the way, are any test buckets running regularly with -sandbox on?
