Agreed, 1G was just a test value, but I'm haven't yet figured out how to
define unlimited.  From libvirt json monitor connection I tried
migrate_set_speed with INT64_MAX, but that was invalid.  Using qemu
monitor directly, I can go as high as INT64_MAX-512

(qemu) migrate_set_speed 9223372036854775295B
(qemu) migrate_set_speed 9223372036854775296B
invalid size

Any hints on proper way to set unlimited migration speed?
