Because QEMU creates devices in the order as in the command line, and
libvirt changes this order - the XML used to create the guest and the XML
which is sends during migration are different. libvirt thinks it is ok
while it keeps @reg property for (for example) spapr-vscsi devices but it
is not because since the order is different, devices call IRQ allocator in
different order and get different IRQs.
