We could deprecate the expensive fields on query-cpus, and move
them to a more expensive query-cpu-state command.  I believe most
users of query-cpus are only interested in qom_path, thread_id,
and topology info.

Markus, Eric: from the QAPI point of view, is it OK to remove
fields between QEMU versions, as long as we follow our
deprecation policy?
