[libvirt] [PATCH 0/4] qemu: Use host-model CPU on s390 by default

On s390 machines host-passthrough and host-model CPUs result in the same
guest ABI (with QEMU new enough to be able to tell us what "host" CPU is
expanded to, which was implemented around 2.9.0). So instead of using
host-passthrough CPU when there's no CPU specified in a domain XML we
can safely use host-model and benefit from CPU compatibility checks
during migration, snapshot restore and similar operations.

This series applies on top of "qemu: Store default CPU in domain XML"
which is already acked, but it's waiting for a QEMU patch to be applied
to 4.2.0.

You can fetch both series at once using
