The old code passes vmstate_register() a pointer to the
M48t59State, and so the offsets in the vmstate line up correctly
with the fields it wants to access. If you use dc->vmsd then the
pointer that is (implicitly) used is the pointer to the device
structure itself, which is not the same address as the
M48t59State embedded inside that struct.

You'd basically need to have extra VMState structures for the
devices themselves which just said "inside this M48txxISAState
is an M48t59State", and "inside this M48txxSysBusState is a
M48t59State" and referred to the existing vmstate for the
