Yes, anywhere before the last byte of the command that is going to use
the fd. QEMU is going to store any fd received until a command is using

We should be able to the the fd, then sent several qmp command, then the
add-fd command, and I think that will work fine.

I don't think QEMU discards fds until a command is using it, or maybe
until a new fd comes in (I did not check this second thought).
