Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] qemu: Support setting the 'removable' flag for USB disks

For what it's worth, I have been successfully using this patchset in
production since March, in its various incarnations.
More specifically, I have been running libvirt 1.1.0 + the latest
patches proposed on July 25th since they were submitted, have been
heavily using emulated USB devices, and I have not experienced
any issue.

My reading of the situation is that the patches submitter has improved
his patches months ago after receiving initial feedback, and since
then the only activity I have seen was him porting his patches to the
latest libvirt code and re-submitting.

What is missing to get these patches merged, then?
(Apart of porting them to the latest version again, of course :)
