What is this? Neither of them sound like Ian J things. Stefano maintains
Qemu and I take care of SeaBIOS.
Yeah, it should be me for QEMU and it is done.

>From the SeaBIOS side we are currently using the latest upstream.

IIRC Stefano has merged the version of qemu which he intends 4.5 to ship
with, but he should confirm...
Yes, I have already merged QEMU 2.0.0 and I am not planning to merge
again a new QEMU upstream release before 4.5.

Needs to wait for 4.6

I would be happy to backport that patch once it is upstream.

The change that was accepted by QEMU upstream depends on a big batch
of other changes (commit c4f5cdc53f181f6fe84a0f1bf99914598934a8a6)
So the backport to QEMU 2.0.x is not simple.

I can provide a QEMU 2.0.x patch that is based on the accepted name and
way it is used, but uses a global variable instead of a property on the
machine object.  I.E. a simple patch.

Let me know if you want this.
