Michael Tokarev - Dec. 30, 2012, 8:48 a.m.
Curses display requires stdin/out to stay on the terminal,
so -daemonize makes no sense in this case.  Instead of
leaving display uninitialized like is done since 995ee2bf469de6bb,
explicitly detect this case earlier and error out.

-nographic can actually be used with -daemonize, by redirecting
everything to a null device, but the problem is that according
to documentation and historical behavour, -nographic redirects
guest ports to stdin/out, which, again, makes no sense in case
of -daemonize.  Since -nographic is a legacy option, don't bother
fixing this case (to allow -nographic and -daemonize by redirecting
guest ports to null instead of stdin/out in this case), but disallow
it completely instead, to stop garbling host terminal.

If no display display needed and user wants to use -nographic,
the right way to go is to use
  -serial null -parallel null -monitor none -display none -vga none
instead of -nographic.

Also prevent the same issue -- it was possible to get garbled
host tty after

  -nographic -daemonize

and it is still possible to have it by using

  -serial stdio -daemonize

Fix this by disallowing opening stdio chardev when -daemonize
is specified.
