I mean it should go into a common source file (perhaps

Yes, I saw that, but I have no idea why you think that's
the right way to set register values. No other code in
QEMU does this.

I suggest:

It should be in the doc-comment format, which begins
"/**" and has some stylization of how you list parameters
and so on. Lots of examples in the existing headers.
