[libvirt] [uq/master PATCH 0/7] x86 CPU subclasses, take 7



Is there any hope to get this into QEMU 2.0, or it is now too late? I got
almost no feedback on take 6 (submitted November 27).

This is the main blocker to allow libvirt finally implement an equivalent to the
"enforce" flag, finally making the CPU configuration safe and sane (today
libvirt simply ignores GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID information, and features are
silently disabled because "enforce" is not used).

This blocks libvirt because the current available interfaces requires re-running
QEMU for each CPU model to be probed. Having the x86 CPU subclasses allow
libvirt to simply create and destroy CPU objects from each available CPU class,
and query for the results using QMP.

Demonstration of how this can be used, below:

Running QEMU as:
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -machine none -monitor stdio -qmp unix:/tmp/qmp,server,nowait -nographic

Then running qmp-shell as:
$ ./scripts/qmp/qmp-shell /tmp/qmp

Changes from take 6:

 * Rebase against uq/master
 * Patch 1/7:
   * Check for __i386__ on host_cpuid() so the code compiles properly
     on non-x86 hosts.
     Suggested-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini redhat com>
   * Don't add assert(kvm_enabled()) line, which is not necessary to help
     the compiler (and wouldn't help it if using -DNDEBUG, anyway).
     Reported-by: Richard Henderson <rth twiddle net>
   * Commit message update
