So here's my suggestion: we should just not worry about printing
a warning for not actually honouring the "please give me a PMU"
flag under TCG. At some point we'll actually implement it,
at which point the problem goes away. In the meantime (a) not
providing a PMU and not bothering to say so is what we were
doing before, and (b) there's lots of bits of the CPU that we
don't actually yet implement in TCG but which will appear as
we fix bugs in the emulation.
