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?

On Ubuntu there already is: /usr/share/qemu/s390-ccw.img
which works for me as part package qemu-system-s390x.

That is part of the suggested contribution in bug 874347 already.
See #2 in that bug and the suggestion to accept it without an ubuntu: label in d/control-in.
