The "safe" mode to do that is to define some kind of daemon running
as root managing tha physical card or port access and qemu joins the 
daemon to have the services.
The daemon can have config files for the sysadm to define each user
privileges while the virtual machine itself runs with user permissions.
The obvious problem in doing that is performance.
