this patch alone, no i don't think so. it only enables offline migration
(because live migration with host hardware is not possible currently)

for usb we could in the future think about unplugging before and
plugging after live migration, but there are still missing pieces for that
aside from this series (usb hotplug is not finished yet completely)

so if you need live migration with your solution, i'd continue to use that
