From: Laszlo Ersek
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 3/4] i386/pc_q35: don't insist on board FDC if there's no default floppy
Date: Thu, 28 May 2015 22:04:10 +0200

The "no_floppy = 1" machine class setting causes "default_floppy" in
main() to become zero. Consequently, default_drive() will not call
drive_add() and drive_new() for IF_FLOPPY, index=0, meaning that no
default floppy drive will be created for the virtual machine. In that
case, board code should also not insist on the creation of the
board-default FDC.

The board-default FDC will still be created if the user requests a floppy
drive with "-drive if=floppy".

Additionally, separate FDCs can be specified manually with "-device
isa-fdc". They allow the

  -device isa-fdc,driveA=...

syntax that is more flexible than the one required by the board-default

  -global isa-fdc.driveA=...

This patch doesn't change the behavior observably, as all Q35 machine
types have "no_floppy = 0".

    - extend commit message with "-global isa-fdc.driveA=..." language
    - set the "create_fdctrl" parameter based on MachineClass.no_floppy,
      rather than a separate compatibility knob [Markus, Paolo]
    - Hesitate a little bit if this patch should affect PIIX4 too, not just
      Q35. On one hand, leaving constant "true" in PIIX4 introduces a
      difference between the boards that is perhaps too "early" in a sense.
      On the other hand, wiring PIIX4 up to the machine class settings gives
      a false impression of dynamism -- the ACPI payload mentioned by
      Gabriel should be then made conditional too; plus  that extra
      flexibility won't be actually exercised in PIIX4. Ultimately, decide
      to go with Q35 only, since that's the ultimate target here, and the
      patch modifies board code after all.
