Simple file database, using hashing. Should be relatively easy to include with
UML sources. It's pretty standard in all Linux distributions.
More up to date than gdbm. Also has B+tree algorithms, so it may be more
apriopriate for filesystem data. Disadvantage is it's larger size but I
believe it could be trimmed down for UML.
API similiarity between gdbm and qbdm should allow for easy transition if

Very powerfull (logging for example) but it's features are rather overkill.
Advantage is that it's available on all major distributions (UML could link
to it dynamically).
Those are just a few possibilities, I'm sure there are other options (like
open source SQL databases ;).
