Ok, there's one final step that needs root privileges on the guest, and that's
to install as setuid root:


I'm fairly confident that this tool couldn't be used to compromise integrity or
confidentiality on the machine.  It's been through some review on LKML by
security people, and e.g. Serge E. Hallyn roughly approved: 

However it almost certainly would be easy enough to use the tool to create tens
of thousands of mount table entries for a DoS.  But on the other hand, I'm not
sure there has ever been a point where one could install a "default"
Fedora/RHEL/Debian that hasn't had easy to use DoS vectors.
