IMHO - qdev->ddev.mode_config.funcs is set only if the initialization is successful,
so using this as an indicator of error case looks ok to me.

The other two options you suggested would require some serious significant amount of work to be done,
which I don’t think I currently have such ability to do.

Thanks,
