This error catches the case of fdset_id not found, but you never raise
an error when has_fd is true but fd is not found within fdset_id.  You
also don't raise an error for back-to-back remove-fd(fdset-id=1,fd=3),
because you aren't checking whether mon_fdset_fd->removed was already true.

I'm not sure which semantic is better, but I _am_ worried that we have
both semantics in teh same function (are we arguing that this command
succeeds when the fd is gone, even if it already was gone? Or are we
arguing that this command diagnoses failure on an attempt to remove
something that doesn't exist).  I guess I'm 60-40 towards always issuing
an error on an attempt to remove something that can't be found or is
already removed.

This means that an fdset with all fds removed will show up as empty in
the output; I guess that's okay, as libvirt could use that to infer that
the dup()d fds are still in use.  The alternative is to keep track of
whether we have output any information about an fd within a set before
including the set itself in the overall output.

JSON does not permit trailing commas.

trailing comma

Also, it might be nice to include something like:

"opaque":"rdonly:/path/to/file"

in one of the examples to give a hint to the reader how to use opaque.
