NB, Prasad just posted a patch (v3 being the latest) that adds another
such exit(1), at my suggestion.

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3] virtio: add check for descriptor's mapped
                        address

So a rebase of this series should likely consider that patch as well.
(But Stefan is aware anyway.)
