I assume I should remove
https://lore.kernel.org/qemu-devel/20190830184033.7630-1-philmd@redhat.com/

With this being reviewed, we can carry out the substitution of
https://lore.kernel.org/qemu-devel/20190830184033.7630-1-philmd@redhat.com/
for this one IMO.

And, as you've suggested, I'll be picking up your pending patches
(but that one) and queueing them on my python-next branch.

Thanks a lot!
