I have to work with an old Debian release - Etch (4.0r9, kernel - as the guest OS in QEmu/KVM. The host is Ubuntu 16. I created a shared folder in Virtual Machine Manager. However, when I try to mount it in the VM, I get the following error:

mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio /scratch/Host /scratch/Host
mount: unknown filesystem type '9p'

Does Debian Etch / this kernel support 9p filesystem in principle? Perhaps with some additional commands, how to get it working?
