Hello list.  I wanted to ask if anyone has been able to make filesystem 
mounting work under a FreeBSD guest?  For example, I've added the 
following to the guest's xml config using 'virsh edit':

<filesystem type='mount' accessmode='mapped'>
<source dir='/tmp/shared'/>
<target dir='tag'/>

However, I don't know how to mount the above from within the FreeBSD 
guest.  That which is instructed to do so on Linux guests does not work 
on the FreeBSD guest:

root at freebsd9-test:~ # mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L tag 
mount: tag: Operation not supported by device

The hosts OS is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.  Thanks in advance for any answers on
