Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 6/7] qemu: use lighter-weight fd:n on incoming tunneled migration

Outgoing migration still has to use a Unix socket and or exec netcat,

Replace Unix socket with simpler pipe.
Suggested by Paolo Bonzini.

I've since been corrected; qemu_monitor.c has qemuMonitorIOWriteWithFD
that looks like it can be used to avoid exec: on outgoing migrations
by instead passing an open fd over a unix socket, although I have not
tested that yet.  However, this patch does not need to be held up by
waiting for the followup patch that optimizes outgoing migrations.
