I don't think we need to do such change on our side. This seems like a
hard to reproduce libvirt bug.

The strange thing is that after playing with the XML generated by
virt-manager, using

[x] Copy host CPU configuration

Creating this XML:

  <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='full'>
    <model fallback='forbid'>Skylake-Client-IBRS</model>
    <vendor>Intel</vendor>
    <feature policy='require' name='ss'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='vmx'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='pdcm'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='tsc_adjust'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='clflushopt'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='umip'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='md-clear'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='stibp'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='arch-capabilities'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='ssbd'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='xsaves'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='pdpe1gb'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='ibpb'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='amd-stibp'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='amd-ssbd'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='skip-l1dfl-vmentry'/>
    <feature policy='require' name='pschange-mc-no'/>
    <feature policy='disable' name='mpx'/>
  </cpu>

Or using this XML in virt-manager:

  <cpu mode="host-passthrough" check="none" migratable="on"/>

Both work with these cluster CPU Type:

- Secure Intel Skylake Client Family
- Intel Skylake Client Family

I think the best place to discuss this is libvirt-users mailing list:
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/libvirt-users
