hw: Mark device misusing nd_table[] FIXME
NICs defined with -net nic are for board initialization to wire up. Board code examines nd_table[] to find them, and creates devices with their qdev NIC properties set accordingly. Except "allwinner-a10" goes on a fishing expedition for NIC configuration instead of exposing the usual NIC properties for board code to set: it uses nd_table[0] in its instance_init() method. Picking up the first -net nic option's configuration that way works when the device is created by board code. But it's inappropriate for -device and device_add. Not only is it inconsistent with how the other block device models work (they get their configuration from properties "mac", "vlan", "netdev"), it breaks when nd_table[0] has been picked up by the board or a previous -device / device_add already. Example: $ qemu-system-arm -S -M cubieboard -device allwinner-a10 qemu-system-arm: -device allwinner-a10: Property 'allwinner-emac.netdev' can't take value 'hub0port0', it's in use Aborted (core dumped) It also breaks in other entertaining ways: $ qemu-system-arm -M highbank -device allwinner-a10 qemu-system-arm: -device allwinner-a10: Unsupported NIC model: xgmac $ qemu-system-arm -M highbank -net nic,model=allwinner-emac -device allwinner-a10 qemu-system-arm: Unsupported NIC model: allwinner-emac Mark the mistake with a FIXME comment.
