Yes, but before realize the flash memory can't actually be
visible to the guest, so there's no need to invalidate anything.

I guess you could have one inside a hotplugged device in theory;
they can't be directly hotpluggged. (I bet that in practice
there are leaks though if you did do that, and we don't have
any devices that do so today.)

I think it makes more sense not to do a flush in the realize method.
