[libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: Ignore fallback CPU attribute on reconnect

When reconnecting to a running domain with host-model CPU started by old
libvirt which did not store the actual CPU in the status XML, we need to
ignore the fallback attribute to make sure we can translate the detected
host CPU model to a model which is supported by the running QEMU.
