Hi Jirka.  I see what you mean about combining dependent patches... It would be 
helpful if this patch was coupled with the qemuMonitorGetCPUModelExpansion 

Could I get you're thoughts on the qemuMonitorGetCPUModelExpansion patch to 
what to do with this one?  

Specifically, I seem to need to send a full CPUModelInfo to QEMU (w/ model name 
+ properties) and get a full CPUModelInfo back from QEMU (again w/ model name + 
expanded properties).

I implemented this by rewriting the contents (property list) of the 
structure that is passed in to qemuMonitorGetCPUModelExpansion.  

I do a similar thing in qemuMonitorCPUModelInfoRemovePropByBoolValue... I 
rewrite the property list rather than allocating and returning a completely new 
CPUModelInfo for output.

Is this consistent with other functions or would I be better off allocating and 
returning a completely new CPUModelInfo for the output?

Or something else.

Thanks for feedback. Chris
