Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 19/19] migration: allow private destination ram with x-ignore-shared
Date: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 16:32:07 +0200

From: Peng Tao <address@hidden>

By removing the share ram check, qemu is able to migrate
to private destination ram when x-ignore-shared capability
is on. Then we can create multiple destination VMs based
on the same source VM.

This changes the x-ignore-shared migration capability to
work similar to Lai's original bypass-shared-memory
which enables kata containers (https://katacontainers.io)
to implement the VM templating feature.

An example usage in kata containers(https://katacontainers.io):
1. Start the source VM:
   qemu-system-x86 -m 2G \
memory-backend-file,id=mem0,size=2G,share=on,mem-path=/tmpfs/template-memory \
     -numa node,memdev=mem0
2. Stop the template VM, set migration x-ignore-shared capability,
   migrate "exec:cat>/tmpfs/state", quit it
3. Start target VM:
   qemu-system-x86 -m 2G \
memory-backend-file,id=mem0,size=2G,share=off,mem-path=/tmpfs/template-memory \
     -numa node,memdev=mem0 \
     -incoming defer
4. connect to target VM qmp, set migration x-ignore-shared capability,
migrate_incoming "exec:cat /tmpfs/state"
5. create more target VMs repeating 3 and 4
