Finally had a chance to test this. The patch itself looks okay;
however, on an actual POWER9 host, I get

  qemu-kvm: can't apply global
  host-powerpc64-cpu.compat=power9: Invalid compatibility
  mode "power9"

and

  qemu-kvm: Compatibility PVR 0x0f000004 not valid for CPU

when trying power9 and power8 compat modes respectively.

David, are these known issues in QEMU? Are they being tracked?

I don't see much point in updating libvirt to cope with these
new compat modes when QEMU itself doesn't.
