I don’t think services should be aware of QEMU.

However, maybe we could add a ‘hardware-service-type’, which services
could extend to express hardware requirements.  Somehow, it would
arrange to fail as early as possible (build time or run time) if the
requirements could not be met.

Likewise for kernel features like virtio-rng.
