Unwanted virtual hardware

The logcheck program sent me this yesterday after migration to KVM:

Jun 14 00:07:09 mymachine kernel: [    1.424133] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0

I feel a little bit uncomfortable having a floppy disk unit in my virtual machine. Is there a way to remove unwanted hardware? (Alternatively: Would it make sense to remove the floppy for everybody?)

I too see this now. dmesg output has:

[    0.494473] Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
[  708.308051] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
