There's magic in the qdev layer now to decide whether a Property in the

I don't think this is true: a legacy property always has a static
counterpart. The magic (really just a fallback) is to decide whether
-device<type>,<prop>=<value> will use the legacy property or a string
visitor + a static property.
Yes, I mispoke. All legacy properties are static properties but not all static
properties are legacy (IIUC).
The exception is PROP_PTR which is always a legacy but never a static.
So there is quite a bit of magic.
