static void virtio_net_set_features(VirtIODevice *vdev, uint64_t features)
{
...
    if (virtio_has_feature(features, VIRTIO_NET_F_STANDBY)) {
        qapi_event_send_failover_negotiated(n->netclient_name);
        qatomic_set(&n->failover_primary_hidden, false);
        failover_add_primary(n, &err);
        if (err) {
            warn_report_err(err);
        }
    }
}

This is probably the only one in QEMU. Back then I stopped looking
after the first hit.
