The API is published already.  What matters even more than the API for
you as a driver maintainer is the driver interface, which is actually
already merged.  It went in before it became clear the libvirt patch
wouldn't go in, but I don't think there's any reason to remove it now.

If you're backporting stuff anyway, you can backport the API patch, as
well.  I see no sense in delivering an API to *everyone* that can't be used.
