[pve-devel] [PATCH qemu-server] qmeventd: explicitly close() pidfds

In most circumstances a pidfd gets closed automatically once the child
dies, and that *should* be guaranteed by us calling SIGKILL - however,
it seems that sometimes that doesn't happen, leading to leaked file
descriptors[0].

Also add a small note to verbose mode showing when the late-cleanup
actually happens, helped during debug.

I'm puzzled by this, and I'm not entirely sure this is the full fix, but it does
seem like a good idea to close the fds explicitly anyway.
