For the 0.15 .. 1.0 change, the first commit which restores the (broken
in 0.15) functionality is this one:

    i8259: Clear ELCR on reset

    The ELCR is actually part of the chipset but we model it here for
    simplicity reasons. The PIIX3 clears the ELCR on reset, which was once
    broken by 4dbe19e181. Fix this by splitting up pic_init_reset from
    pic_reset and clearing the register in the latter.

Which is quite expected having in mind the commit which "broke"
it for 0.15.

And that turned out to be not so easy for me.  Which is this
series against?  Is there may be a git tree with this series
applied already?
