I tried playing with it and encoding the capabilities is
Can we add bits for specific capabilities instead of nvdimm-cap?
Hmmm...I don't like that as much because:
a) It's very verbose. Looking at my current qemu command line few other
options require that many characters, and you'd commonly be defining more
than one of these for a given VM.
b) It means that the QEMU will need to be updated if/when new flags are added,
because we'll have to have new options for each flag. The current
implementation is more future-proof because you can specify any flags
value you want.
However, if you feel strongly about this, I'll make the change.
