I think we need to check all of them and fail qemu_open() if they don't
match. Those that qemu can change, should be just changed, of course.

In which scenario would any client break if we set FD_CLOEXEC? I don't
think compatibility means we can't fix any bugs.

I agree. We could just check and return an error if they aren't set
correctly, but I think adjusting the flags is nicer.
