[libvirt] [PATCH 0/3] qemu: support disabling/enabling kvmclock with <timer> elements



QEMU supports a bunch of CPUID features that are tied to the kvm CPUID
nodes rather than the processor's.  They are "kvmclock", "kvm_nopiodelay",
"kvm_mmu", "kvm_asyncpf".  These are not known to libvirt and their
CPUID leaf might move if (for example) the Hyper-V extensions are enabled.
Hence their handling would anyway require some special-casing.

However, among these the most useful is kvmclock; an additional
"property" of this feature is that a <timer> element is a better model
than a CPUID feature.

This is what this series does.  Patch 1 tweaks the -cpu parsing code so
that it detects the "default" CPU names and (instead of creating a <cpu>
element) sets the guest arch to either i686 or x86_64; this is useful and
helped writing testcases.  The next two patches add the new feature.
Finally, patch 4 tweaks the default CPU model to be more precise when
KVM is enabled.

Paolo Bonzini (4):
  qemu: get arch name from <cpu> element
  conf: add kvmclock timer
  qemu: parse and create -cpu ...,-kvmclock
  qemu: default to kvm32/kvm64 when KVM is enabled
