I've done that, I have the same dsl version.

I just tried that but that don't work either, and I suspect -merely a
guess- this is not related to block driver but to kernel loading -see my
other post on that-. Perhaps someone else will have it working -and I'll
know that's my build which is bad-. At least your patch doesn't break
win32 compilation and qemu still run when using bootable disk image.
