The problem is libvirt that starts qemu-kvm with -nodefconfig (you can try
running qemu-kvm -nodefconfig -cpu \? and check the list of available CPUs),
which means /etc/qemu/target-x86_64.conf file is ignored by qemu-kvm. You will
need very recent qemu-kvm (at least 1.1) and libvirt (0.9.13 or newer), which
finally fixed this longstanding issue.
