This series extends query-cpu-definitions to include an extra
field: "unavailable-features". The new field can be used to find
out reasons that prevent the CPU model from running in the
current host.

This will return information based on the current machine and
accelerator only. In the future we may extend these mechanisms to
allow querying other machines and other accelerators without
restarting QEMU, but it will require some reorganization of
QEMU's main code.

Changes v2 -> v3:
* Small documentation reword
  * Suggested-by: Markus Armbruster <arm...@redhat.com>
* Create a x86_cpu_feature_name() function, to
  isolate the code that returns the property name

Changes v1 -> v2:
* Fixed documentation to say "(since 2.7)"
* Removed @runnable field, improved documentation

Example command output:
