In one of the latest platforms there's two QMP instances, so we decided
to make the reference explicit to prepare for the introduction of that.

So I intend to pick this patch through the qcom tree.

And we don't need to synchronize it with the net-changes; the two
changes can go independently and only when they are both in place will
the change take effect and the issue resolved.
