At this point, pc-0.10 is just:

static QEMUMachine pc_machine_v0_10 = {
    .name = "pc-0.10",
    .desc = "Standard PC, qemu 0.10",
    .init = pc_init_pci,
    .max_cpus = 255,
    .compat_props = (CompatProperty[]) {
            .driver   = "virtio-blk-pci",
            .property = "class",
            .value    = stringify(PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_OTHER),
            .driver   = "virtio-console-pci",
            .property = "class",
            .value    = stringify(PCI_CLASS_DISPLAY_OTHER),
            .driver   = "virtio-net-pci",
            .property = "vectors",
            .value    = stringify(0),
            .driver   = "virtio-blk-pci",
            .property = "vectors",
            .value    = stringify(0),
        { /* end of list */ }

But to really make it work, we need to take a list of each savevm format
change and put it here.  Notice that several changes are needed:
- savevm infrastructure save functions don't know about version id
- devices don't know to "behave" as other version
- other things that I have probably missed

Later, Juan.
