Is there a way to mount a partition on the kvm host and one guest at the same time?

(on linux / ubuntu, no samba suggestions, please)

A normal filesystem will be corrupted if you mount it from multiple OS's at the same time. A cluster file system should work.

The easiest solution is probably to use NFS.
