I've not quite figured it out but we're linked against the stubs/ monitor
code rather than the real monitor code; and the stubs monitor_vprintf discards
and the stubs monitor_cur_is_qmp() always returns false, so to silence things
we just have to make cur_mon non-NULL.
Unfortunately cur_mon is of type Monitor * and Monitor isn't defined publicly,
so we can't know it's size.  The following evil hack does silence things
for anyone desperate, but I do need to find a neater way; perhaps the right
thing is just to link against monitor and create a dummy "null" chardev as you
say.
