That explains it.  git.qemu.org/git/qemu.git is the upstream qemu
repository, and lacks kvm integration.  As such, it lacks -device
pci-assign.

To build qemu-kvm, you also need to track
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/qemu-kvm.git (which is heavily
based on the former qemu.git).  Without kvm support, qemu will still be
able to emulate x86_64 platforms, but it's noticeably slower.

Good - my reproduction of your issue (and my patch) was correct.

And this, as desired, is a successful feature probe even though it lacks
pci-assign.* information.

Sorry for getting your name wrong in my commit message.
