Hm, I see.

This one doesn't really make sense indeed...

Would get you some kind of consistency at least, even though I don't
like that secondary monitors can't use the functionality.

Can't we make the fdset information global, so that a qemu_open/close()
searches all of them, but let it have a Monitor* owner for keeping track
whether it's in use?
