This patches add the definition of a SandyBridge CPU model.

Summary of differences:

Flags present on actual hardware, but not on the added model definition:

- pbe, tm, ht, ss, acpi, vme, xTPR, tm2, eist, smx: host-specific
  features, not exposed to guest.
- ds, ds-cpl, dtes64, pdcm: emulation not supported by KVM (although it
  may be added in the future if implementing PMU virtualization)
- pcid, vmx, monitor: not emulated by Qemu/KVM right now.
- osxsave: set by the guest OS, not by Qemu.

Flags added, that were not present on Westmere model:

- xsave: already supported by Qemu
- avx, pclmulqdq: all new state the new instructions could use is
  handled by xsave state loading/saving code.
- tsc-deadline, x2apic, rdtscp: already supported by Qemu/KVM.

Below there's a comparison of the features on the current Westmere CPU
model, and the SandyBridge CPU model.

- The "full" line contains the flags found on actual hardware.
- The "missing" line shows the flags that are present on actual
  hardware, but not on the added SandyBridge model.
- The "new" line shows the flags that were not on the Westmere model,
  but are on SandyBridge.
