In the end both patches fixes an odd-ball case. Marc had a test running
that in parallel started guests and randomly killing QEMUs with pkill.
The QEMUs did end with 

qemu-system-s390x: KVM PV command 0 (KVM_PV_ENABLE) failed: header rc 0 rrc 0 IOCTL rc: -12

instead of

qemu-system-s390x: terminating on signal 15 from pid 26495 (pkill)
