We'd like to move forward with this. I rebased this patch set again
(available at https://github.com/Blub/pve-qemu-server cloudinit branch).
There are a few final steps before we can merge this:
- Since the patch set contains a bunch of fixup-style commits we'd like
to squash them to create a more easy-to-read (and easier-to-bisect)
@Alexandre: Since some of our changes fixup & build upon each other's
previous patches I'd propose using a 'Co-developed-by' tag in the
commit message for when squashing fixups of one person into another's
commit, would that be okay with you?
- I'm really not a fan of using qemu-nbd here, particularly because in
my latest tests its been shown to require some additional fsync-work
(see my latest patch on github inserting a `dd conv=fsync` pipe...).
There are two options: Since the images are really tiny, we could
create temporary files in /run for now, and convert those, or, since
I'm building qemu with a patch for `dd` to accept data from stdin,
the only thing missing for that to be usable is to make it not return
an error if the input is too short.
- The config-drive format has a few issues. For one, I couldn't use it
in a VM without forcing its network interface name to match the
config drive's (`eth0`) (and then it completely ignored my DNS
I wonder if we should switch to the NoCloud variant which seems to
allow matching by mac address (as well as driver or name)?
