We need to be able to run qemu as not root. Has anyone tried using qemu

LD_PREFIX option reads directories recursively in an endless loop
Status in QEMU:
Status in qemu package in Debian:
If I run qemu user emulation with -L /path/to/my/sysroot/ in which
also the proc and dev filesystem is mounted QEMU eats my memory until
it gets killed by the kernel.
According to the strace output it follows the symbolic links in the
proc filesystem running forever in a recursive loop.
The easiest solution would be to add in the function "add_dir_maybe"
in the file util/path.c an additional check for symbolic links that it
don't follow them.
Also I don't really understand the need of doing this. A lot of
ressources are wasted everytime QEMU-user is started just by having
the directory structure in memory. In my case this are more than 20000
entries which QEMU is loading every time.
