We can still use a shutdown "script", but it needs to be something
that can be compiled in order to get the necessary capabilities.

Hmm, what's actually the current behavior regarding network interfaces
when a kvm process is SIGKILLed?

Also... tap devices can be made non-persistent. I wonder if there's a
nice way to hand over a non-persistent tap device to qemu. It would
then automatically be removed when the process shuts down.
