I'm not a maintainer so my opinion isn't worth a lot here, but this
seems like the right direction to me. I'd like to see the qemu patch
(do mention the dependency on the kernel patch) on the qemu-devel
mailing list. I think these numbers also support some of the prereqs
listed above that have gone through several iterations getting queued up
for 3.19.
