This isn't very clear. Because xen doesn't support ac97 (and neither does old
QEMU), we can't _unconditionally_ add an ac97 card. That doesn't mean we can't
support it, such as giving the user an option to install ac97 via the Add
Hardware wizard if they are using qemu or kvm.

Just because virt-manager supports N platforms doesn't mean we can't support
features that only work on M < N platforms, we just need to expose them in a
hypervisor independent way (but libvirt largely sets the stage for this).
