I think block-common.h is better. We don't have that much block layer
specific guest-side code that it would make sense to split it up.

IANAL either, but as I understand it:
It is, otherwise distributing qemu would be illegal. But compatibility
means more or less that you can mix them within one project, it doesn't
mean you can convert from one to the other.

This might be possible. (Though true dual-licensing would mean that the
whole code, including new parts, can be used under either license. This
isn't what we would be doing.) Or have a GPL header and after that add a
notice like "Portions of the code are licensed under the following
conditions: <old license header>".
In any case it's pretty clear to me that you're not allowed to drop the
MIT license header (and therefore blockdev.c still needs a fix)
