[PATCH] chardev: delete QemuOpts when a chardev is removed

Posted by Paolo Bonzini 2 weeks ago
QEMU cannot add a chardev with the same id as a previously unplugged device.
The root cause of this issue is that the QemuOpts is still registered,
causing qemu_opts_create to fail.  Remove the QemuOpts when a character
device is removed.
