"virt" is a funny case because there is no underlying hardware
that we're trying to match. So it is whatever we say it is
and we've said it's two separate pflash chips. We don't need
to change that I think. (IIRC this is derived partly from
OVMF usecase requirements and partly from the vexpress devboards
having 2 flash chips.)
