I originally added the device_del because I experienced long delays in
stopping the source VM, but I did not debug further (and unfortunately
cannot remember more details). if such delays are not reproducible
(anymore) when taking out that foreach, I am OK with it.

I think my tests were with -rc5, so it is possible something changed on
the Qemu side as well..
