Thanks, applied. I'll probably send a pull req after lunch.

[Some procedural notes: I've created a new vfio-ccw-fixes branch based
on the s390 fixes branch for easier handling. Things targeted for the
next release will go on the vfio-ccw branch on top of the s390 features
branch, as before. Does that work for everybody? (And I am the only
vfio-ccw maintainer with a kernel.org account, right?)]
