Can you use a real name instead of an anonymous psuedonym for patches.

This adds an attribute named 'removable' to the 'target' element of
disks, which controls the removable flag. For instance, on a Linux
guest it controls the value of /sys/block/$dev/removable. This option
is only valid for USB disks (i.e. bus='usb'), and its default value is
'off', which is the same behaviour as before.

To achieve this, 'removable=on' is appended to the '-device
usb-storage' parameter sent to qemu when adding a USB disk via
'-disk'. For versions of qemu only supporting '-usbdevice disk:' for
adding USB disks this feature always remains 'off' since there's no
support for passing such an option.

If you add in


then you can distinguish explicit on/off settings from the
default setting to address my earlier comment.


Or use

VIR_DOMAIN_FEATURE_STATE_[DEFAULT|ON|OFF|LAST] that I introduced specifically to avoid adding enums like this for every feature.
