Thanks, I missed it on the list indeed.

I think it's fair to say it's not maintained.  The whole
hw/hyperv/vmbus.c was submitted as a part of the work by Jon to enable
some obscure windows debugging feature which only worked in presence of
VMBus.  It was mostly taken from the respective branch of the (now
effectively abandoned) downstream tree with an implementation of the
core VMBus infrastructure and the devices using it; however, none of the
actual VMBus devices ever made it into the mainline tree.

This seems to basically be the revert of 4dd8a7064b "vmbus: add
infrastructure to save/load vmbus requests"; it was originally meant to
be submitted with the code that would use it, vmbus scsi controller, but
that never happened.  It believe it's safe to remove without affecting
Jon's work, but I'd rather check with him.
