Whether the full eventual patch set introduce regressions I don't
know - I would hope not, but you never know. The two patches
discussed here do introduce at least what one could perceive as
regression: A device previously passing through fine to a guest
may all of the sudden no longer do so.

But what I was trying to say above wasn't anything related to
whether the patches introduce regressions, but that the patches
don't _fix_ any regression - the brokenness was always there.

All of the questions you raised further down are likely misaddressed
at me - they would need answering by the respective patch
