Thanks, applied these to qom-cpu:
https://github.com/afaerber/qemu-cpu/commits/qom-cpu

These had been around for quite some time and I have reviewed the first
three line by line; for the fourth I have looked at the script sources
and trust Igor's review. Thanks for repeatedly rebasing this, Eduardo!

This one is lacking Reviewed-by / Acked-by ...

... and this one seems to depend on it.

As mentioned earlier I'd prefer to defer the property design rather than
putting it lightly reviewed into 1.5 and living with some ABI.
If libvirt urgently needs this info, this series needs to be reviewed
and sorted out until the weekend (Hard Freeze on Monday).
