I forgot to run 'make check'. Just did now. All but one test
passed. Nope, it wasn't pc-cpu-test (the only cpu topology
using test) that failed. That one did output two new warnings,
so I should fix and/or deprecate it. The one that did fail was
vhost-user-test. I confirmed that it does not fail without this
series. I'll look into it soon, maybe tomorrow.
