I tried running a CD straight from the block device node and it failed
*every time*, irregardless of the permissions or the user I tried
running QEMU from. So I'd say you can't do it, as simple as that (but
I haven't tried booting straight as the root user on OS X; that might
work but I seriously doubt it). Images always work, though.
