[libvirt] [PATCH] Drop hle feature for Haswell CPUs



The intel-microcode 3.20140913.1 update disables TSX-NI (transactional
memory instructions). When a server running libvirt is rebooted with
this update, libvirt no longer considers the machine to have a Haswell
CPU:

 # virsh capabilities | grep -A1 '<arch>x86_64'
    <arch>x86_64</arch>
    <model>SandyBridge</model>

Since Intel disables the feature on their CPUs we shouldn't check for it
as well to keep VMs using Haswell working.

This was debugged and reported by Chris Boot at
