The type of the return value doesn't matter.
qemuProcessPrepareAllowReboot() changes private data and that is
potentially dangerous if done outside modify job (even though the @vm is
locked at this point so I guess it is not that dangerous after all).

Yeah, but RestoreJob is special - we can't call it after job is
acquired, we want to save currently running job to a temp variable so
that we can start a new job.

Ooops, yes.
