Commit ed65fd1a27 restricted the 'scsi' property to Linux hosts:

It was restricted to Linux hosts before that commit; that only became
problematic because we set it unconditionally in the compat code.

   1261 static Property virtio_blk_properties[] = {
   1262     DEFINE_BLOCK_PROPERTIES(VirtIOBlock, conf.conf),
   1268 #ifdef __linux__
   1269     DEFINE_PROP_BIT64("scsi", VirtIOBlock, host_features,
   1270                       VIRTIO_BLK_F_SCSI, false),
   1271 #endif

What about:

Commit ed65fd1a2750 ("virtio-blk: switch off scsi-passthrough by
default") changed the default value of the 'scsi' property of
virtio-blk, which is only available on Linux hosts. It also added an
unconditional compat entry for 2.4 or earlier machines.


When we try to set this property on a pre-2.4 machine on OSX,

Pre-2.5, I think?

Yes :S

we get:

    Unexpected error in object_property_find() at qom/object.c:1201:
    qemu-system-x86_64: -device virtio-blk-pci,id=scsi0,drive=drive0: can't 
apply global virtio-blk-device.scsi=true: Property '.scsi' not found

Fix this error by marking the property optional.

Fixes: ed65fd1a27

Fixes: ed65fd1a2750 ("virtio-blk: switch off scsi-passthrough by default")
