Igor Mammedov - Jan. 17, 2013, 3:16 p.m.
Move custom features parsing after built-in cpu_model defaults are set
and set custom features directly on CPU instance. That allows to make
clear distinction between built-in cpu model defaults that eventually
should go into clas_init() and extra property setting which is done
after defaults are set on CPU instance.

Impl. details:
 - features that are already properties, are converted to normalized
   (name, values) list. And after featurestr has been parsed,
   properties from the list are applied directly to CPU instance.
   * For now it provides uniform handling of properties with single
     object_property_parse() property setter.
   * And after current features/properties are converted into static
     properties, it will take a trivial patch to switch to global properties.
     Which will allow to:
     * get CPU instance initialized with all parameters passed on -cpu ...
       cmd. line from object_new() call.
     * call cpu_model/featurestr parsing only once before CPUs are created
     * open a road for removing CPUxxxState.cpu_model_str field, when other
       CPUs are similarly converted to subclasses and static properties.
 - re-factor error handling, to use Error instead of fprintf()s, since
   it is anyway passed in for property setter.

I am not sure I like this extra complexity. We don't need it if we
simply set/register the properties directly.

I have a different proposal:

1) By now, use:
      object_property_parse(OBJECT(cpu), P, V, errp)
   in the places you are using:
      x86_cpu_add_nv_pair(&props, P, V)
   below.

2) The day we move to global properties, we just need to mechanically
   replace the occurrences of:
     object_property_parse(OBJECT(cpu), P, V, errp)
   with:
     qdev_prop_register_global("X86CPU", P, V)

What do you think?
