             offset into the image

       -b, --bind=iface
             interface to bind to (default B<0.0.0.0>)

       -r, --read-only
             export read-only

       -P, --partition=num
             only expose partition I<num>

       -s, --snapshot
             use I<filename> as an external snapshot, create a temporary
             file with backing_file=I<filename>, redirect the write to

       -l, --load-snapshot=snapshot_param
             load an internal snapshot inside I<filename> and export it
             as an read-only device, I<snapshot_param> format is

       -n, --nocache
       --cache=cache

             disconnect the specified device

       -e, --shared=num
             device can be shared by I<num> clients (default B<1>)
