Isn't the commit 452639a64ad8 itself is a workaround for legacy guest?

I think the point is, since there's legacy guest we'd have to support,
this host side workaround is unavoidable. Although I agree the violating
driver should be fixed (yes, it's in today's upstream kernel which
exists for a while now).
