Well I'll be guided by what Richard thinks about the chances of this
merging ahead of the main MTTCG patches. You were mentioning the trouble
with testing with the kvm-unit-tests based tests which all need MTTCG
system mode to trigger problems. However user mode emulation "works" now
(even better since Peter's signal fixes) so it might be worth
investigating if we can leverage some user-mode testing instead.
Also generally keeping patch series clean and self contained stops too
large a pile of patches getting pilled up waiting for the controversial
bits to get reviewed and merged.
I'm willing to merge this before mttcg. I'm with Alex that we should minimize
the amount of code that gets blocked by that patch set.
