Good question, qio_channel_socket_set_blocking() calls qemu_set_nonblock().
But it seems to also use its own source handler
qio_channel_create_socket_watch(), so the AIO notifier is probably needless

Another possibility (this one requires much more attention to avoid missing

That? doesn't work here.
