Thanks, it's upstream now:

  http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/qemu.git/commit/?id=c1d6eed7e8

as is the machine type aliases:

  http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/qemu.git/commit/?id=9574758134

This is on the 0.12 branch, but I've asked for them to be pulled into
the stable-0.11 branch ... we'll see.

Cheers,
Mark.
