Hi Philipp,

IIRC qemu-1.1.2 saved 16 bytes, which is the correct size, not 4 bytes.

So while merging from qemu-kvm -> qemu, it was decided to maintain
backwards compability with qemu, and not qemu-kvm.

Is there any way to differentiate between the two (qemu vs qemu-kvm, 
perhaps via some other field not in the VMState of ACPI PIIX4), so
your patch can be integrated upstream?
