+Print the list of CPU models known by libvirt for the specified architecture.
+Whether a specific hypervisor is able to create a domain which uses any of
+the printed CPU models is a separate question which can be answered by
+looking the domain capabilities XML returned by B<domcapabilities> command.
+Moreover, for some architectures libvirt does not know any CPU models and
+the usable CPU models are only limited by the hypervisor. This command will
+print that all CPU models are accepted for these architectures.
