I've tested all possible combinations, with and without these patches.
The result is here:


- Migration is totally broken in qemu-2.2
- without these patches, migration cannot be done from/to qemu-2.3
- with these patches, qemu-2.3 can migrate to/from qemu-2.6
- 1st patch breaks pseries-2.2, pseries-2.3 migration from/to
  qemu-2.4/2.5 but 2nd patch allows to fix this manually.

Feel free to update the page.
