But I would prefer to see this merged only after we see machines
actually using the property.  Can you send that as a single
series later?

Also, maybe we can do it in a simpler way:

I now see that fw_cfg is not the only user of
get_boot_devices_list().  I didn't want to have a fw_cfg-specific
field in MachineClass, but but we can make it not fw_cfg-specific
if we make it affect all get_boot_devices_list() calls.

What do you think of the patch below?

(Patch is untested)
