Great. First, make sure you have cpuid and current qemu installed. Then
go to tests/cputestdata and run ./cpu-gather.sh script there. It should
print CPUID dump followed by a lot of JSON from QEMU. If that works, you
can pipe it to another script:

    ./cpu-gather.sh | ./cpu-parse.sh

This will create new data files for cputest. They will be called
x86_64-cpuid-*{.xml,.json,-disabled.xml,-enabled.xml}. Got back to the
top source directory, edit tests/cputest.c and add a new test case:


where <NAME> is the part between "x86_64-cpuid-" and ".json" from the
new data file. If you rebuild libvirt and run tests now, cputest should
fail complaining about missing files. Run

    VIR_TEST_REGENERATE_OUTPUT=1 tests/cputest

from the build directory to create those files. Running "meson test"
should succeed now. If it does, you can just add all the new files and
tests/cputest changes to git and send it for review.
