$ cat /tmp/catchexit.c
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

void exit(int status)
    const char msg[] = "*** CAUGHT EXIT, DUMPING CORE ***\n";
    write(2, msg, sizeof msg);

void _exit(int status) __attribute__((alias("exit")));

$ gcc -o catchexit.so -shared -fPIC -std=gnu99 catchexit.c

$ LD_PRELOAD=/tmp/catchexit.so x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -m
1024 -enable-kvm -cpu host -vga asdf
Unknown vga type: asdf
Aborted (core dumped)

Make sure to give the absolute path to catchexit.so.  Also keep in
mind that this does not catch a normal return from main() or possibly
other ways of terminating the process.

You can hook more library functions, if necessary.
