[Qemu-trivial] [PATCH] Remove PCI class code from virtio balloon device

From: David Gibson
Subject: [Qemu-trivial] [PATCH] Remove PCI class code from virtio balloon device
Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2012 15:59:23 +1100

Currently the virtio balloon device, when using the virtio-pci interface
advertises itself with PCI class code MEMORY_RAM.  This is wrong; the
balloon is vaguely related to memory, but is nothing like a PCI memory
device in the meaning of the class code, and this code is not required or
suggested by the virtio PCI specification.

Worse, this patch causes problems on the pseries machine, because the
firmware, seeing this class code, advertises the device as memory in the
device tree, and then a guest kernel bug causes it to see this "memory"
before the real system memory, leading to a crash in early boot.

This patch fixes the problem by removing the bogus PCI class code on the
balloon device.
