Yes, if there is only one guest is running, "default" guest is "the"
guest. Then with my patch in this thread applied, it works well.

But consider this scenario, there are two guests are running, but we
need to record-report one of them.

--guestmount can achieve this request, but as a shortcut of guestmount,
--guest{kallysms, modules} dose not
support it well, right? So, I think we can discard the default guest,
and use guestpid in record-report.
