Hi, Andrea,

I have sent another non-rfc patchset about this already:

https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2016-02/msg05270.html

I am not sure whether you have received it or not (you should be in
the CC list :), just pasting it again here. Do you think this would
work for us?

Btw, the thread is receiving none reviews till now. Looking forward
to have any of your further comments!

Thanks!
Peter
