Yes, I am going through that currently and will ask you if I have any queries.

First thing I made sure if I wasn't breaking anything. Basically I
checked if blockdev-add worked with it and then if I am able to remove
it with x-blockdev-del. Also, there were no major changes which could
make the patches to break. I don't see tests available for SSH either
so there was nothing much I can do.
Do you have anything in mind?
