  I suggest to add an "int version" field here to be able to extend the

  and "int unused[16];"

With those 2 we should be able to cope with backward compatibility on
saved domain even if we don't know yet what may be needed. At worse it's
a few bytes lost in a very big file, at best it's a life saver.

#define QEMU_SAVE_VERSION 1 somewhere and then 

       header.version = QEMU_SAVE_VERSION;

       maybe + 1 to account for the trailing 0

  I suggest to define or reuse existing safe write and read routines which
handle interruped calls with EAGAIN.
