Oh, that. :) That does need extra code. Something along the lines of:

(a), in the JSON, reuse the existing String wrapper type, and make
"cpus" an optional list of String[s]:

{ 'type': 'NumaNodeOptions',
  'data': {
   '*nodeid':           'uint16',
   '*cpus':             ['String'] }}

(b) in the code, traverse the StringList like net_init_slirp_configs()
or slirp_dnssearch() does. Parse each element as an interval, set bit
ranges / report errors.

    static int numa_node_parse_cpu_range(int nodeid,
                                         const char *cpu_range)
        /* what numa_node_parse_cpus() does in 02/12 */

    static int numa_node_parse(const NumaNodeOptions *opts)
        const StringList *cpu_range;

        /* not sure how to handle the (!opts->has_nodeid) case; let's
         * assume we have a nodeid here */

        if (opts->nodeid >= MAX_NODES) {
                    "NUMA nodeid %d reaches / exceeds maximum %d\n",
                    opts->nodeid, MAX_NODES);
            return -1;

        for (cpu_range = opts->cpus;
             cpu_range != NULL;
             cpu_range = cpu_range->next) {
            int ret;

            ret = numa_node_parse_cpu_range(opts->nodeid,
            if (ret < 0) {
                return ret;
        return 0;

Did you mean something like this by prototype?
