Running mach-virt machine types (i.e. "-M virt") on different systems can
result in various misleading warnings if -cpu and/or gic-version not specified.
For KVM, this can be solved mostly by using "host" type. But the "host" type
doesn't work for TCG. Compared with "host", the "max" type not only supports
auto detection under KVM mode, but also works with TCG. So this patch set
"max" as the default types for both -cpu and gic-version.
