I could not be bothered to split the patches.  Also, please review
whatever you know about as this is just a compilation of stuff from
the git log.

+          Hitting the RPC limits we have is easier every day, so they

+          call and push through even bigger requests and replies for
+          all APIs.

+          For some users, in some rare cases, it could happen that
+          there was an error message "internal error: End of file from
+          qemu monitor" in the logs even though no problem happened.
+          The detection of these false positives was improved and such

+        <description>
+          When error occurred in a specific point in time during the
+          hot-plug of an RNG device, it could happen that an address
+          was released even though another device was already using
+          it, making it possible to hot-plug another device with that
+          address, effectively having duplicated addresses in the XML.
