virt-manager 1.0 ships support for flagging USB devices as removable
(contributed by a Tails developer, because we do need this here).

Unfortunately, a follow-up refactoring by an upstream contributor
(commit eee5061a) broke this feature with a tiny typo, and on current
sid I get:

  Error changing VM configuration: define_disk() got an unexpected
  keyword argument 'removeable'

Fortunately, another upstream contributor fixed this trivial typo with
commit eb5b26131 (by removing *one* char, s/removeable/removable/),
that is part of the 1.1 upstream release.

The attached patch (against current Vcs-Git) import the fixup commit
from upstream as a quilt patch. I've tested on current sid that it
does indeed fix the bug for me.

It would be great to have this fixed in Jessie :)  Have you plans to
re-upload virt-manager in time for it to migrate before the freeze?
If you prefer me to NMU with these changes, just say so.
