If the model is specified with -M by user or libvirt, then all seems
fine, but renaming default CPUs like qemu64 et al. (as done for
non-default ones in the next patch) would break machines' cpu_init()
call. That's a fairly common use case for non-x86 machines.

The alternative would be to incept closer to object_new(), i.e. call an
alias resolution helper from the various cpu_*_init() functions.

Please keep me cc'ed.

Thanks,
Andreas
