Looks all very nice. I'm not completely sure if qemu is the right place to
put the helper though. I can see that it helps you to have it there, but
basically anyone using tun/tap could use the same functionality, so packaging
it together with tunctl would be nice, either in the same binary or as
two binaries in the same package.

Then again, tunctl is (on some distros as least) part of the uml-utilities
package for similar reasons, which feels equally wrong now.
