john cooper - May 23, 2011, 9:47 p.m.
Launching qemu with "-cpu [check|enforce]" without explicitly
prefixing a valid model name doesn't do as intuitively expected.
Rather qemu exits with a CLI parse error.

Unfortunately due to qemu's CLI argument parsing structure and
the fact cpu models are initialized depending on build configuration,
supporting the above implicitly for the default model is far more
clunky than it ought to be.  So as a minor concession to a far more
simple solution, a pseudo model name of "default" is added which
expands internally to qemu's build configuration default and is then
interpreted conventionally.  The result is then the following example
usage:

    # x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu default,check
    Using CPU model "qemu64,check"
    warning: host cpuid 0000_0001 lacks requested flag 'popcnt' [0x00800000]
    warning: host cpuid 8000_0001 lacks requested flag 'abm' [0x00000020]
    warning: host cpuid 8000_0001 lacks requested flag 'sse4a' [0x00000040]

    # x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu default,+aes,enforce
    Using CPU model "qemu64,+aes,enforce"
    warning: host cpuid 0000_0001 lacks requested flag 'popcnt' [0x00800000]
    warning: host cpuid 0000_0001 lacks requested flag 'aes' [0x02000000]
    warning: host cpuid 8000_0001 lacks requested flag 'abm' [0x00000020]
    warning: host cpuid 8000_0001 lacks requested flag 'sse4a' [0x00000040]
    Unable to support requested x86 CPU definition

etc..  allowing both the ability here to "check|enforce" the default
model, as well as accepting arbitrary feature flags due to fan into the
existing flag parsing.  The resulting patch, which also indicates the CPU
model in use, is minimal.

Please review and apply.
