ACK
No technical problems...
so here are some stylistic suggestions

I find this formatting a little easier to read/maintain:
[e.g., with each declaration on a separate line, independent changes to
 veid and errfd might not conflict, but they surely would when they're
 all on the same line. ]

    int veid;
    int pid;
    int outfd = -1;
    int errfd = -1;

Same here, putting the common bits one above the other
makes it easier to see the parts that vary:

       vm->stdout_fd = -1;
       vm->stderr_fd = -1;

And here:

       int childout = -1;
       int childerr = -1;

Maybe s/cannot/Failed to/?
The latter is slightly stronger/clearer,
and consistent with other messages.
