I think this is the right level myself. Advisory locks work okay but
not all filesystems support them. It's particularly nasty when you have

good to have a feature like that was supposed to provide a safe-guard
but then frequently didn't work.
Are you trying to say that any kind of significant portion of QEMU
users have clustered file-systems?
I think that's unlikely, and it'd be nice if QEMU by default did a
fcntl() on writeable image files to lock itself from multiple access,
that'd benefit the vast majority of users.
Let the 0.x% of users who need to run with weird/esoteric fses cope..
