And if I'm not mistaken, there's also talk on the qemu list about
implementing a way to make qemu inform at least the virtio net driver in
the guest to do a DHCP refresh, such as after a migration, as another

I'm okay if it goes in now, before any second release candidate is
built, but since you have some cleaned up nits in your tree, I'll let
you be the ultimate judge of when to push.
