It also fails for vhost-scsi-pci-transitional on 2.6 and older machines.
The problem is that HW_COMPAT_2_6 tries to set the disable_modern
property, which the version-specific variants of virtio-pci do not have.
Not sure how to fix this. The version-specific devices cannot really
work on the compat machine.
