Sorry, I should have stated that I was assuming that LPC always
gets slot 1 assigned if it has no address explicitly assigned by the user
in the XML.

In my understanding, some guests are picky about what slot LPC
is assigned to (and it seems that slot 1 and slot 31 are the most common
safe options). In this case we're letting user to resolve it in a way
they think fits better their specific needs, correct?

In other words, in context of address allocation, we treat LPC like any
other device, with the only difference that we start address allocation
from it, so it gets slot 1 if it has no address specified and the slot 1
is still free?
