Ah, so when host-passthrough CPU is passed to the baseline API, we
should report an error. So this patch is actually trying to handle
single CPU definition with a non-empty <model> element specified. Good,
as the API is of course supposed to work in this case. It should
basically return the CPU definition passed to it with unsupported
features disabled.

Normally, expansion should only be done when requested by the
corresponding API flag. The simplest fix would be just returning the
original CPU definition if only one was passed to baseline. But the
result might not be the correct one as it could include unsupported
features. So is static expansion the thing that will return the expected
result? If so, this patch is mostly correct...

While full expansion has to always be performed on the baseline result,
static expansion should only be called when ncpus == 1. In other words,
rather than removing this condition, you should change it to

       if (expand_features || ncpus == 1) {
