[PULL 16/22] python/machine: Handle QMP errors on close more meticulousl

Subject: [PULL 16/22] python/machine: Handle QMP errors on close more meticulously
Date: Mon, 1 Nov 2021 13:30:00 -0400

To use the AQMP backend, Machine just needs to be a little more diligent
about what happens when closing a QMP connection. The operation is no
longer a freebie in the async world; it may return errors encountered in
the async bottom half on incoming message receipt, etc.

(AQMP's disconnect, ultimately, serves as the quiescence point where all
async contexts are gathered together, and any final errors reported at
that point.)

Because async QMP continues to check for messages asynchronously, it's
almost certainly likely that the loop will have exited due to EOF after
issuing the last 'quit' command. That error will ultimately be bubbled
up when attempting to close the QMP connection. The manager class here
then is free to discard it -- if it was expected.
