Machine QOM'ification has been requested to be postponed by Anthony, so
that we can do it really cleanly when we do it.

I don't think we have any official guidelines for QOM naming, but it
seemed to me an unwritten rule that we use the dash for separating name
components whereas command line options coming from KVM seem to use
underscore. For the CPU those were written in stone already so I
manually "translated" '_' to '-' there. Might be worth thinking about
for this and future command line / property additions.
