This item seems rather misleading as you're using virtio drivers as a
guest. I think the right fix is to just remove the VIRTUALIZATION
dependency for the qemu drivers and just include them from
drivers/Kconfig for all architectures. There aren't a whole lot Linux
architectures that don't have a qemu emulation these days.
