    Example launcher handle guests not being ready for input
    
    We currently discard console and network input when the guest has no
    input buffers.  This patch changes that, so that we simply stop
    listening to that fd until the guest refills its input buffers.
    
    This is particularly important because hvc_console without interrupts
    does backoff polling and so often lose characters if we discard.
