there is a cpu_ppc_register function in target-ppc/translate.c which
does what's needed for emulated PPC selection.
The CPU is registered from the emulated board definition, ie in
hw/ppc_prep.c or hw/ppc_chrp.c.
Your patch conflicts with this code.

It seems to me that cpu selection should go in board definitions, like
all the rest of emulated hardware selection, then have nothing to do in
