Hmm this is a MachineClass, not qdev, so no realize().

In softmmu/vl.c we have:

4152     configure_accelerators(argv[0]);
....
4327     if (!xen_enabled()) { // so xen_enable() is working
4328         /* On 32-bit hosts, QEMU is limited by virtual address space */
4329         if (ram_size > (2047 << 20) && HOST_LONG_BITS == 32) {
4330             error_report("at most 2047 MB RAM can be simulated");
4331             exit(1);
4332         }
4333     }
....
4348     machine_run_board_init(current_machine);

which calls in hw/core/machine.c:

1089 void machine_run_board_init(MachineState *machine)
1090 {
1091     MachineClass *machine_class = MACHINE_GET_CLASS(machine);
....
1138     machine_class->init(machine);
1139 }

         -> pc_machine_class_init()

This should come after:

         -> pc_machine_initfn()

            -> pc_system_flash_create(pcms)
