Indeed. For chardev and drive properties which will be some kind of
link<..> in the new world (correct?) it probably makes sense to keep
them as legacy<...>.
While being at it: bus properties might need some more thinking here
too. Partly they are used for physical addressing, so they will be
replaced by link<...> too I guess? Some of them have special parsing
and will end up in legacy<...> anyway. Some are plain integers though
(hda for example) ...
