Are these Tizen-specific features? Do you plan to work on upstreaming
these and other Tizen-specific changes?

Maintaining large patches of upstream projects in Tizen is not the
preferred mode of operation.

I know, but what does that mean in the context of qemu? Running qemu
*on* Tizen? Who maintains that?

At least 
2Fqemu-accel.git;a=shortlog;h=refs%2Fheads%2Ftizen show some activity
this year to keep the package working. If no-one uses the resulting
qemu, we should remove it from 3.0.
