Good question. The QEMU version (unknown) used to generate the original
test data did not enable xsaves on the host while the version (also
unknown) used to regenerate them enabled this feature. It's also
possible the host is actually not exactly the same even though it has
the same CPU model. I'm not sure if any configuration can influence
availability of xsaves for guests. Perhaps I could have used different
words in the commit message...

It should cause any trouble. This is the point of all the code and these
tests after all. When starting a domain we record what features were or
were not really enabled in the virtual CPU and record this in domain XML
so that we can ask for exactly the same CPU configuration during
migration, restore, or snapshot revert.
