The CPUID level value on Conroe, Penryn, and Nehalem are too low. This
causes at least one known problem: the -smp "threads" option doesn't
work as expect if level is < 4, because thread count information is
provided to the guest on CPUID[EAX=4,ECX=2].EAX

Testing: those level values have been in use on Red Hat Enterprise Linux
since version 6.0 (released in 2010). The fix wasn't submitted to QEMU
earlier because we didn't have a good mechanism and clear procedure to
update CPUID values of existing CPU models in QEMU.
