I think the idea is great.  I'm a little worried about the implementation, though.

Leftover cruft, it looks like.  It's not used anywhere, and you can just use
DEBUG() for the same thing.

What happens if you have enough arguments that you overrun 512 bytes in the cmd
array?  I guess the sizeof(cmd) - strlen(cmd) - 1 will protect you from running
off the end of the buffer, but you'll truncate the output.  There are some
examples elsewhere in the code (src/qemu_conf.c, I think) that properly build up
the whole thing; it's probably worthwhile to look there.

Don't you also want to close(outfd) here?

Ditto for errfd.
