Yeah, disabling undesired devices is really a job for downstream and Red
Hat do indeed do this in RHEL builds of QEMU.

What's missing from an upstream side I think is largely a documentation
issue. ie a way to actually tell our users the good, bad & the ugly
for QEMU features, so they can make informed decision to disable stuff
if they wish.
