As an aside, I'd like to see all command line options have qmp 
equivalents (most of them can be implemented with a 'set' command that 
writes qdev values).  This allows a uniform way to control a guest, 
whether at startup or runtime.  You start with a case, cold-plug a 
motherboard, cpus, memory, disk controllers, and power it on.

I would also like a way to read the entire qdev tree from qmp.

Do not meddle in the internals of kernels, for they are subtle and quick to panic.
