I'm not sure I like this very much. The reference output should always
be what we actually expect it to be. Therefore, usually the issue is
fixed first and the test is added only afterwards.
If I want to see the impact I can just do what I always do in those
cases: Go to the base commit, compile qemu, step forward to commits to
the test, run the test, see it fail, compile qemu again, run the test,
see it pass.
So would it be possible to switch this and patch 3?
(Apart from that, this patch looks good.)
