Due to unforseen problems with QEMU + network device hotplug we need to
delay this release by a few days. I'm suggesting Wednesday 3rd as the
new date.

Specifically, we switched over to use -netdev for networking devices at
startup, but it turns out there is no way to use this facility from the
QEMU monitor, which breaks hotplug & unplug. So I need to back-out / disable
the code which enables use of '-netdev' again until QEMU fixes hotplug.
