Does this need an error check?

Yes, sorry I forgot.

Why not? If we allocated them, we have to free them.

In the case of VM destruction, when qemu process exits, it conflicts
with the work of the usual (process) destructor's job.

I struggled with this problem before sending the first version.

So I have to differentiate the slot release and qemu process exit.

kvm_free_physmem_slot(&slots->memslots[i], NULL);

Please introduce the user bitops as part of this patchset.

OK, I will do in the next version. In this RFC, I would be happy if I can
know the overall design is right or not.
