Yes, this is something that I've been planning to solve some way or
another, specially to be able to run functional tests for dpkg itself
as non-root.

In any case thanks for the patches! I'll review them next week, as I've
some pending stuff to do first.

I'd also like to mention that I noticed the Yocto Project packaging
dpkg some time ago, and added it to the downstream wiki page
<https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Dpkg/Downstream>, and that I'd like to
merge any of the patches that you currently carry that make sense, or
try to help rework them so that you can avoid needing a delta at all.
