and in particular patches 9 and 10. Since that time it seems things
have changed


Do you have the kernel commit IDs?


and this essentially reposts those two patches with
some minor adjustments in logic in order to "restore" the support.
There are lots of interesting tidbits in unreadable by the general
public bz's, so I won't include links here.

 qemu: Add ability to set sgio values for hostdev
 qemu: Add check for unpriv sgio for SCSI generic host device
