This is indeed strange as KVM used to report the host's CPU name
directly, but it shouldn't cause any harm except for confusion humans
looking at the libvirtd logs or capabilities cache. In other words, it's
worth fixing unless it was an intentional change with a very reason

I'm not sure if it's related (i.e., caused by the same QEMU changes),
but it's definitely not caused by the difference in model-id. Libvirt
does not even look at model-id, we only check individual CPU properties.

QEMU just reports svm, npt, and nrip-save are disabled... might be worth
reporting to them to check whether it is expected.
