Can you instead reuse the ideas from nbd_server_set_tcp_port() from

That has the advantage of checking whether a port is actually in use
(using 'ss' - although it does limit the test to Linux-only; perhaps
using socat instead of ss could make the test portable to non-Linux?)

Do you actually need to attempt a qemu-nbd process, if you take my
suggestion of using ss to probe for an unused port?  And if not, do we
still need qemu_nbd_pipe() added earlier in the series?

common.nbd just iterates, instead of trying random ports.
