3.3.2? We dropped micro versions some time ago.

There already is an element called <link> with attribute "state" which
modifies the link state in qemu. So that maps to guest link state. So
this patch has a naming collision going on.

I also don't really see how modifying the host side link state would be
useful. Could you elaborate why you think it would be useful?

At any rate, if you provide a justification, you also need to modify the
XML portion to have a separate element and provide a test case as it's
required with XML changes.
