I somewhat belatedly got round to updating my QEMU patch
that uses this new fcntl() flag to fix the bug. Sorry for
the delay getting round to this. You can find the QEMU patch here:
(it's an RFC because obviously we won't put it into QEMU until
the kernel side has gone upstream and the API is final.)

What's the next step for moving this forward?
