I'm looking forward for the SMAPIv3 integration. I already took a look on the concept and I really like the separation of volume and datapath plugin. I think this will make a lot of things easier in the future.

Ceph (qemu-dp) in XCP-ng 7.6
the last week, I tried to understand how the RBDSR plugin is working (or at the moment not working) in XCP-ng togther with qemu-dp.
I see how the plugin is working together with ceph, and how it communicates with qemu-dp, but I don't understand the current state of the qemu-dp package.
At the moment I'm able to create a disk image in ceph, but starting a VM with this image results in a qemu error that the rbd protocol is unknown.
Maybe someone can explain to me the current state of the qemu-dp package in XCP-ng 7.6? I see that there is a version in the xcp-ng-extras repo, which I
have installed at the moment. But is seems that it don't support rbd protocol. For 7.5 there was a extra qemu-dp package build for ceph, should this be the
same package as in the 7.6 extras repo?
I also see that there is work done in a smapiv3-changes branch in this repo:
As there is a file block/rbd.c I would assume this is a qemu-dp version which supports the rbd protocol, is this correct?
Would be great if someone could give me a explanation how the qemu-dp is handled in XCP-ng and what your plans are.
