Commit Message

Stefano Garzarella Sept. 21, 2020, 12:25 p.m. UTC
Commit 9b3a35ec82 ("virtio: verify that legacy support is not accidentally
on") added a check that returns an error if legacy support is on, but the
device does not support legacy.

Unfortunately some devices were wrongly declared legacy capable even if
they were not (e.g vhost-vsock).

To avoid migration issues, we add a virtio-device property
(x-disable-legacy-check) to skip the legacy error, printing a warning
instead, for machine types < 5.1.
