[libvirt] [PATCH V1 1/2] cpu: Handle only high order 16 bits of PVR for IBM Power processors



IBM Power processors encode PVR as CPU family in higher 16 bits and a CPU
version in lower 16 bits. Since there is no significant change in behavior
between versions, there is no point to add every single CPU version in
cpu_map.xml and check for the same in cpu_powerpc.c
