Thanks for this patch. However, this bug has already been fixed
in commit f7f3ff1da0c in 2014, which made it into the 2.2
QEMU release in December 2014. We don't support releases
that old upstream. So if you're still running 2.1 then
(a) I strongly urge you to upgrade
(b) if this QEMU is from a Linux distro vendor and they're
still supporting it, then you should talk to them about
backporting commit f7f3ff1da0c
