The problem is not connected to any driver. The reason why tests fail when run
against uninstalled libvirtd is that cpu_map.xml is not at it's expected place
and cannot be read. Actually it could be solved by adding
cpuMapPath() internal API which would allow to change the path to cpu_map.xml
in runtime. It could actually be useful in the future if we decide to allow
local CPU models to be defined, e.g., in /etc/libvirt/cpu_map.xml.

Thanks. I pushed patches 1 to 5:

  Deal with CPU models in []
  Move MIN macro to util.h so that others can use it
  Support removing features when converting data to CPU
  Use configured CPU model if possible
  Fake host CPU for qemu tests
