When we receive a file descriptor over a UNIX domain socket the
O_NONBLOCK flag is preserved.  Clear the O_NONBLOCK flag and rely on
QEMU file descriptor users like migration, SPICE, VNC, block layer, and
others to set non-blocking only when necessary.

This change ensures we don't accidentally expose O_NONBLOCK in the QMP
API.  QMP clients should not need to get the non-blocking state

A recent real-world example was when libvirt passed a non-blocking TCP
socket for migration where we expected a blocking socket.  The source
QEMU produced a corrupted migration stream since its code did not cope
with non-blocking sockets.
