Don't touch device code for this.

>>> -void pvpanic_init(ISABus *bus)
>>> +void pvpanic_init(ISABus *bus, PcGuestInfo *guest_info)
>>>  {
>>>      ISADevice *dev;
>>> -    FWCfgState *fw_cfg = fw_cfg_find();
>>> +    FWCfgState *fw_cfg = guest_info->fw_cfg;
>>>      if (!fw_cfg) {
>>>          return;
>>>      }
>>>      dev = isa_create_simple (bus, TYPE_ISA_PVPANIC_DEVICE);
>>> -    pvpanic_fw_cfg(dev, fw_cfg);
>>> +    pvpanic_guest_info(dev, guest_info);
>>>  }

To pick this one as example:  Instead of patching pvpanic code to stuff
config info into GuestInfo you should (1) search the device object tree
for a pvpanic device and (b) if present read the ioport property to
figure the base address.

/me suggests to check out qmp_qom_get() in qmp.c.  Some qom aequivalent
for qdev_find_recursive would be handy, dunno whenever such a thing
exists already, Andreas?

I'd tend to accept GuestInfo as temporary thing for stuff which can't be
figured using qom properties today.  Anthony might disagree though.
