I'd call it -M bare-1.1, so that it can be used to override driver
properties in 1.2+.

So we'd have

  # default machine for this version
  qemu / qemu -M pc

  # an older version's pc
  qemu -M pc-1.1

  # just a chassis, bring your own screwdriver
  qemu -M bare

  # previous generation chassis, beige
  qemu -M bare-1.1

That is because -M not only specifies the components that go into the
machine, it also alters other devices you add to it.

This also helps preserve the planet's dwindling supply of command line
options.
