I'd be happy with that. Presumably downstream can then patch
things so qemu-kvm-compat defaults in the way they want (if
we don't like the configure option).

However, that's not compatible with using PC_COMPAT as far as I
know (unless there is some cunning way you can make a machine
parameter change compat_props things).
