My concern is this can delay signalling for unlimited time.
Could you pls test this with guests that do not have
2b5bbe3b8bee8b38bdc27dd9c0270829b6eb7eeb
b0c39dbdc204006ef3558a66716ff09797619778
that is 2.6.31 and older?

This seems to be slighltly out of spec, even though
for TX, signals are less important.

Two ideas:
1. How about writing out used, just delaying the signal?
This way we don't have to queue separately.
2. How about flushing out queued stuff before we exit
the handle_tx loop? That would address most of
the spec issue.
