QEMU has a policy of keeping a stable guest device ABI.  When new guest device
features are introduced they must not change hardware info seen by existing
guests.  This is important because operating systems or applications may
"fingerprint" the hardware and refuse to run when the hardware changes.  To
always get the latest guest device ABI, run with x86 machine type "pc".

This patch hides the new VIRTIO_BLK_F_CONFIG_WCE virtio feature bit from
existing machine types.  Only pc-1.2 and later will expose this feature
by default.

For more info on the VIRTIO_BLK_F_CONFIG_WCE feature bit, see:

      virtio-blk: support VIRTIO_BLK_F_CONFIG_WCE

      Also rename VIRTIO_BLK_F_WCACHE to VIRTIO_BLK_F_WCE for consistency with
      the spec.

Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com> reported:

  This broke qemu-test because it changed the pc-1.0 machine type:

  Setting guest RANDOM seed to 47167
