[Libguestfs] [PATCH] qemu: Upstream regression of -stdio serial option.



I've tested this with both upstream qemu from git, and the old
non-broken qemu from Fedora 12.

Subject: [PATCH] qemu: Upstream regression of -stdio serial option.

Best explained by the comment in the code:

    /* Newer versions of qemu (from around 2009/12) changed the
     * behaviour of monitors so that an implicit '-monitor stdio' is
     * assumed if we are in -nographic mode and there is no other
     * -monitor option.  Only a single stdio device is allowed, so
     * this broke the '-serial stdio' option.  Therefore if qemu
     * supports the -monitor option at all, set it to null.  Note also
     * that '-monitor none' doesn't work here either.
     */
