afaict, this will fix a regression caused by commit 75f86906c5.
Where we used to report "kvm" before that patch, without this patch,
we would only report "qemu".

Are you sure it is regression? QEMU is a program (platform) while KVM is technology. Modern VirtualBox can use KVM as PV interface but it still remains VirtualBox. QEMU may use KVM as PV interface but it still remains QEMU.

Where does it matter? Is anything broken because of this change?

The reason is because cpuid detection
must come before dmi detection. Also, both can safely come before
other xen heuristics.
