Sure, but the whole world isn't libvirt. If the process listening to the
monitor is not the same as the process which launched the VM, then I
think including the action is worthwhile. Besides, the way Wen has done
this is identical to what we already do with QEVENT_WATCHDOG and I think
it is desirable to keep consistency here.
