So what about a void pointer then as parameter?
I prefer a pointer for qemu process memory over uint64_t as part of the
function interface. This makes it somewhat clearer that this is an
address within QEMU. Both ways will certainly work, though.

Conny, I guess you will pick up the patches. Any preference?
