Host filesystem for Qemu

I hacked together a simple host filesystem for Qemu this afternoon using fuse. This now becomes yet another project on my plate that needs cleanup and working through the submission process.

I use Qemu a lot and have some fancy scripts to automatically build disk images based on directories so I can easily test Xen and such. Of course, it's a real pain for things like Xend testing b/c I cannot just simply make a quick source code change and test again.

Even this it's a very primative hostfs (read only, single user), it's actually more than enough for what I need. I have to get my new webserver in line so I can make this stuff visible.
