Should work with compat properties.  That is a list of device, property
and value which a specific machine type should use.  Typically they are
used to make versioned machine types behave simliar to older qemu
versions (this is where the name comes from).  Using them to use
non-default properties on ppc platform should work too.

For example in qemu 1.5 the nic roms got EFI support and there is a
compat property which switches the pc-i440fx-1.4 (and older) machine
types to the non-efi versions.  Grep for pxe-e1000.rom to find the code.
