Yes it works with 0.55.0, with only a few warnings about possible future
incompatibility.  Those will be fixed in 0.56.0, where the feature was
stabilized without introducing any incompatibility.

Carrying around Meson in a submodule was mostly done to let QEMU build
transparently on older distros.  Removing it is easy (though it would
involve modifying the docker files to install the latest meson, so
whatever you throw out of the door comes back through the window).
