I know of lots of recent x86 hardware where the subsystem IDs are not
set in hardware, but in the BIOS instead. That allows board vendors to
set their own subsystem IDs (usually for chipset devices) in the BIOS
even if the hardware is identical to that of other vendors.
And since the OS will never see the PCI devices without a valid
subsystem ID, I'd say setting the subsystem IDs in the BIOS is spec
compliant as well.
Have you investigated setting the subsystem IDs in the Qemu BIOS?
