This is probably what you described as "the only concern?  Can you
explain why you are doing this?  If we only need to request specific
regions, I think we should do exactly that, requesting only parts of
regions that are covered by the virtio capabilities.

Seems cleaner than looking for a specific class.

Didn't look at device code in depth yet.
