We could declare that -virtioconsole always creates a bus a feature, but
I can do that in good conscience only if the console created along with
it always gets attached to it, even when other suitable buses exist.
I'd just discourage mixing -virtioconsole and -device virtio-serial-$bus
The whole point of -virtioconsole is backward compatibility for
management apps / start scripts and the like and it should create a
device which can be used by the guest like the qemu 0.11 virtioconsole.
If you are using device virtio-serial-$bus you are obviously not needing
the backward compatibility stuff ;)
