It doesn't matter that BIOS code is not executed on restore. What qemu
should be doing is saving the PCI configuration spaces -- at least the
important bits (BARs, command register) but probably it may as well save the
whole 256 bytes per device.

If it's not doing this already then that's rather scary. What if the OS
decides to shuffle PCI resources around, which is its right to do?
