Should this parameter be optional, in which case qemu generates the set
number as the next available?  The return information would include the
set number whether or not this parameter was present from the caller,
and allowing it to be optional makes it slightly easier for callers to
generate a new set without having to make the caller track which set ids
are in use.

Should 'fd' be optional, as a shorthand for saying that _all_ fds
belonging to the set be marked as removed at once?

May need tweaking, based on the answers to the above questions.
