If I understand it correctly, this is now obsoleted by the fact that
qemu dropped s390-virtio and runs with their own s390-ccw rom now that's
built from the qemu source. Is that correct? Can we close the s390-tools
bug at least? And I suppose arrange for s390-ccw.rom to be shipped from
the qemu package?
