Should the TC accept changes listed in the description to resolve issue VIRTIO-116, for inclusion in specification version(s) "virtio 1.0 cs03", and future versions of the specification?

Please vote Yes if you agree with all of the following.
If you disagree, please vote No.

I move that:
The TC agrees to resolve the following specification issue:
VIRTIO-116: ccw transport needs to allow failing WRITE_STATUS
--------------------------------------
The WRITE_STATUS ccw command needs to be able to fail, e.g. when the driver
wants to set FEATURES_OK but the device can't work with the features.
--------------------------------------

The TC accepts the following proposed changes to the specification:
--------------------------------------
Failure scenarios for driver and device need to be documented:
- driver must check for failures of WRITE_STATUS and treat device as unusable
- device must post failure of WRITE_STATUS if the driver tries to set a wrong state

Proposed patch: (updated)
