commit 8935499831312 makes cpuid return to guest host's vendor value
instead of built-in one by default if kvm_enabled() == true and allows
to override this behavior if 'vendor' is specified on -cpu command line.

But every time guest calls cpuid to get 'vendor' value, host's value is
read again and again in default case.

It complicates semantic of vendor property and makes it harder to use.

Instead of reading 'vendor' value from host every time cpuid[vendor] is
called, override 'vendor' value only once in cpu_x86_find_by_name(), when
built-in CPU model is found and if(kvm_enabled() == true).

It provides the same default semantic
 if (kvm_enabled() == true)  vendor = host's vendor
 else vendor = built-in vendor

and then later:
 if (custom vendor) vendor = custom vendor

'vendor' value is overridden when user provides it on -cpu command line,
and there isn't need in vendor_override field anymore, remove it.

 v4:
   - rebased with "target-i386: move out CPU features initialization
     in separate func" dropped. So remove vendor_override in
     cpu_x86_register() instead.
   - replace x86cpu_vendor_words2str() with x86_cpu_vendor_words2str()
     due to renaming of the last in previous patch

Thanks, rebased and applied 2-3 to qom-cpu (rebreaking the text due to
new indentation and fixing a typo present in the original):
