Can we run tests in more than one configuration. Right now you are using
cache=mmap for virtio-9p and cache=auto for virtiofs and as Miklos
said this is not apples to apples comparison.

So you can continue to run above but also run additional tests if
time permits.

virtio-9p       virtio-fs

cache=mmap      cache=none + DAX
cache=none      cache=none
cache=loose     cache=always

Given you are using cache=mmap for virtio-9p, "cache=none + DAX" is
somewhat equivalent of that. Provides strong coherency as well as
allow for mmap() to work.

Now kernel virtiofs DAX support got merged in 5.10-rc1. For qemu,
you can use virtio-fs-dev branch.
