I'm thinking that we don't need to loop here waiting for the 
pidfile to be created.

Since virExeDaemonize is calling waitpid() on the intermediate
program, it will block until the intermediate program has 
exited. Since the intermediate program is now writing the pidfile
instead of QEMU,  when  virExecDaemonize returns, we *must* have
written the pidfile (or had a earlier failure). So I believe
we just need to check if it exists once, with no need to wait in
a loop.
