From: "Dr. David Alan Gilbert" <address@hidden>

  This series converts the outer most layer of virtio to
use VMState macros;  this is the easy bit, but I'm hoping that
having done that, the next trick is to nibble away at the virtio_save/load
functions and all of the zillions of device/bus helpers.

I think the first two patches are the most controversial;
they remove migration support for old version of virtio-net and virtio-serial;
(for virtio-net versions prior to 0.11 and for virtio-serial prior to 0.13).
I'm working on the basis that migration has bit rotted enough so
that the streams aren't migration compatible for that long back
on upstream - but if anyone knows otherwise please shout.

The reason for doing those is that the virtio structure makes
it a bit tricky to pass the outer device version number down
through VMState to the device specific code (I can do it
as a hack if necessary using a dummy is_needed function);
and with -net and -serial compatibility sorted I think
every other device just supports a single version.

My main reason for doing this is to get rid of the
calls to register_savevm ('going to disappear as soon..' since 2010)

It's lightly tested using the magic line:
./x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -nographic -machine pc-i440fx-2.6,accel=kvm 
-cpu qemu64 -m 2048M -drive file=/home/vmimages/f20.img,if=none,id=drivea 
-device virtio-scsi,id=scsi -device scsi-hd,drive=drivea -device virtio-rng 
-device virtio-serial -chardev file,id=test,path=/tmp/testfile -device 
virtconsole,chardev=test,name=foo -virtfs 
local,path=/home,security_model=passthrough,mount_tag=host_share  -device 
virtio-gpu  -drive file=/home/vmimages/jeos-19-64.qcow2,id=jeos,if=none -device 
virtio-blk,drive=jeos  -device virtio-balloon
