  I think DanP can better comment on the QEmu interaction than me,
but the patch looks simple and clean except:

  It seems that if for some reason you do a partial read on the QEmu
console descriptor ending in the middle of the escape command you may
have a problem. But it's possible that the way reads are done, and input
is chunked garantees that this won't happen, DanP can probably confirm 
it's just fine :-)
