[PATCH] hw/nvme: deprecate the use-intel-id compatibility parameter
Posted by Klaus Jensen 3 weeks ago
From: Klaus Jensen <k.jensen@samsung.com>

Since version 5.2 commit 6eb7a071292a ("hw/block/nvme: change controller
pci id"), the emulated NVMe controller has defaulted to a non-Intel PCI
identifier.

Deprecate the compatibility parameter so we can get rid of it once and
for all.
