  Thank you.
| Note that;a=blob;f=hw/nvram/fw_cfg.c
| has:
|   static void fw_cfg_write(FWCfgState *s, uint8_t value)
|   {
|       /* nothing, write support removed in QEMU v2.4+ */
|   }
| and has no fw_cfg_read function.

  That's right. This issue affects Qemu versions prior to 2.4. Above change 
was made immediately after the release of v2.3.


Thank you.
