      Add -f FMT / --format FMT arg to qemu-nbd · e6b63677
      Daniel P. Berrange authored
      Currently the qemu-nbd program will auto-detect the format of
      any disk it is given. This behaviour is known to be insecure.
      For example, if qemu-nbd initially exposes a 'raw' file to an
      unprivileged app, and that app runs
         'qemu-img create -f qcow2 -o backing_file=/etc/shadow /dev/nbd0'
      then the next time the app is started, the qemu-nbd will now
      detect it as a 'qcow2' file and expose /etc/shadow to the
      unprivileged app.
      The only way to avoid this is to explicitly tell qemu-nbd what
      disk format to use on the command line, completely disabling
      auto-detection. This patch adds a '-f' / '--format' arg for
      this purpose, mirroring what is already available via qemu-img
      and qemu commands.
        qemu-nbd --format raw -p 9000 evil.img
      will now always use raw, regardless of what format 'evil.img'
