That's exactly what you added properties for last minute in v1.5!

libvirt instantiates qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu foo,+x,+y and then checks
that it got what it wanted  - if not, die, otherwise continue with
virtualization. One process.

That's one process on the destination with one -machine pc-i440-x.y.
Is the problem possibly rather that -incoming and QMP exclude each
other? Then we should fix that instead by starting incoming migration
from QMP in the same process that we used to check that migration will
be possible without guest-visible changes.
