Is 'cpu' (and the followup commands affected by it) the only stateful
HMP command pairing?  Is there a way to specify multiple HMP commands in
a single human-monitor-command QMP call?

Indeed, tweaking qemu's human-monitor-command call to track the state
might be cleaner than having libvirt have to tweak API to work around
this wart of HMP.
