From: Markus Armbruster <>

We can drop a device from the build only when it isn't referenced from
code we build.  References come in two forms: extern symbols, and qdev
driver names.

Unresolved extern symbols pose no real danger, because they fail
safely at link time.  The dropped code doesn't define any extern
symbols anyway.

Unresolved driver names get detected only at runtime, so we better be
extra careful.  Occurences of the driver name outside the code dropped
by this patch:

* default_list[] in vl.c: Used only to disable default VGA with
  -device isa-vga.  Safe.

* vga_available() in vl.c: Tests whether the device is compiled in.
  No change, because device "VGA" is still compiled in, therfore safe.

* isa_vga_init() in hw/isa/isa-bus.c: Its only potential caller
  pc_vga_init() never calls in RHEL, because it never gets a null
  pci_bus argument.  Safe.
