From: "Jose R. Ziviani" <jziviani@suse.de>

If users try to add an isa-vga device that was already registered,
still in command line, qemu will crash:

$ qemu-system-mips64el -M pica61 -device isa-vga
RAMBlock "vga.vram" already registered, abort!
Aborted (core dumped)

That particular board registers the device automaticaly, so it's
not obvious that a VGA device already exists. This patch changes
this behavior by displaying a message and exiting without crashing.
