This place looks dangerous to me:

@@ -3836,7 +3840,7 @@ qemuMigrationRun(virQEMUDriverPtr driver,
     else if (rc == -1)
         goto cleanup;
-    if (priv->job.current->stats.status == QEMU_MONITOR_MIGRATION_STATUS_POSTCOPY)
+    if (priv->job.current->status == QEMU_DOMAIN_JOB_STATUS_POSTCOPY)
         inPostCopy = true;

It makes decisions based on current state of migration and consult stats.status for
this purpose. Such a check can be mistaken because in the code above this hunk if error occurs we change only current->status
value. Also after patch 6 we can update stats.status during fetching migrations
stats but not change current->status.

However in a more detail analysis it looks like this code do not have undesired
effects and only look dangerous (at least to me). So I guess I'd better say it is easier
to reason about if we have postcopy as one of the status states.
