What are the 4.7 release plans btw?

Stumbled over that one too, so my series has a (different) fix for it as

I'd expect it is broken (at least for older guests).  In case 2.5 works
fine as-is we should be able to ditch
TYPE_IGD_PASSTHROUGH_I440FX_PCI_DEVICE altogether b/c it is a no-op in
2.5 because of the bug.

But lets wait for the test results ...
