Yes, that's a possible solution.

You could also take these patches which I sent to qemu-devel:


The latter change is already in Blue Swirl's patch.

The former is for the setenv issue. Jes Sorensen asked you to make some changes, and you never replied; this is the best way to keep your patch *out* of the tree. Blue Swirl patch is suboptimal with respect to setenv, because the setenv is actually useful under Win32, but I still think it should go in---and then you can fix it in a better way if you want to follow the rules of the community.


Hello Paolo,

Jes has an opinion how thinks should be done, and I have a different one.
If you read the complete history, you can see that I suggested a compromise (*)

to reach this result were different, and I have good reasons why I
prefer my way to do them. Both ways require two commits, so
there would be no difference for the community nor for the

I did not reply to Jes' last mail because he claims to represent the
community without accepting that others (in this case me) who are
also part of the community might have good reason for their approach, too.
