Subject: [PATCH] hw/s390x: Add a more verbose comment about get_machine_class() and the wrappers
Date: Thu, 23 Jan 2020 18:02:56 +0100

While working on the "Enable adapter interruption suppression again"
recently, I had to discover that the meaning of get_machine_class()
and the related *_allowed() wrappers is not very obvious. Add a more
verbose comment here to clarify how these should be used.
