What do you mean by proper patches? The whole point of this is to ease the
process for the user to add custom guest-to-qemu interactions, so there is no
"proper implementation" here.

Blue Swirl already mentioned this can be used for testing qemu itself, while my
use case is coupled with the trace instrumentation features (I'll probably send
the first batch today).
