Don't we already have qemu_set_cloexec() for this purpose?

Or maybe make fcntl_setfl() take a mask of bits to alter?  You're right
that it's not worth changing if you won't take advantage of the changes.

O_NDELAY is the obsolete spelling of O_NONBLOCK; which means the only
other flags in your list not supported by Linux are O_LARGEFILE (which I
said was pointless), O_NOCTTY (which only has an impact at open() and
not later on, so it is not worth worrying about), and O_SYNC (so for
that one, you should error out if not set correctly, as the difference
between O_SYNC on vs. off is significant).
