  Just a suggestion: add what dependancy is missing for not adding
it immediately so if one hit the comment later it's easier to understand
why this is missing and how to fill in.

  Okay, patch looks fine, but agreed let's wait for the dependancy in
QEmu to be commited before pushing this to CVs,

   thanks !
