Heh, Paolo's mail landed in the pull req thread in my mail client and I saw
it after sending the patch :P ... also I'm pretty sure Paolo was made aware
of this issue by Coverity, just as I was :)

Hi,

Please find the latest report on new defect(s) introduced to QEMU found with
Coverity Scan.

...

*** CID 1385702:  Control flow issues  (MISSING_BREAK)
/hw/ppc/spapr_hcall.c: 1700 in h_get_cpu_characteristics()
1694             break;
1695         }
1696     
1697         switch (safe_indirect_branch) {
1698         case SPAPR_CAP_FIXED:
1699             characteristics |= H_CPU_CHAR_BCCTRL_SERIALISED;
>>>     CID 1385702:  Control flow issues  (MISSING_BREAK)
>>>     The above case falls through to this one.  
1700         default: /* broken */
1701             assert(safe_indirect_branch == SPAPR_CAP_BROKEN);
1702             break;
1703         }
1704     
1705         args[0] = characteristics;


No big deal I guess :)
