"the final patch" referenced there was:

  [edk2] [PATCH v2 5/5] OvmfPkg: make the 4MB flash size the default

So I have now modified the commit message on that patch, adding the
following paragraph:

Seeing Gary's Tested-by on the Xen commit, I've also pushed the reworded
edk2 patch, as commit 1c47fcd465a4.
