No.  There is nothing to keep in sync.  And there is no extra copy of data.

Today you have pci_set_*() calls somewhere in PCIDeviceInfo->init().
I'd like to see them replaced with PCIDeviceInfo->$field + setup in
common code.  The information that device $foo has vendor id 42 and
device id 4711 (and other properties) just moves from code to data.
We still need it in config array which is read by guest.
So that is two places.

There's no reason that we couldn't make the config space read like all of the other spaces we support. IOW, instead of using an array to store the data, store each element in a structure, and have a big switch().

I'm not sure one's better than the other though TBH.

I think just universally moving to a set of accessors that took a PCIDevice as an argument in the form of pci_device_set_vendor() would be a big improvement.
