They mean we can't literally just point our submodule at upstream,
because upstream isn't a git repo and submodules must point
at git repos. (However I think we generally prefer to point at
a git.qemu.org mirror of upstream's repo anyway.)

Sounds reasonable.

It's also an obvious problem in terms of tracability and trust
of the code we're shipping to people... We must fix this for 2.4
(or ideally ASAP) I think.
