This will need to be fixed for ARM -- the whole idea of there
being a sensible "default machine type" and it being the one
QEMU starts by default is pretty x86-centric. libvirt needs
to have support for specifying which machine to use.

(There is consideration of changing the default ppc64
machine, as it happens; but in general you can't rely
on QEMU doing what you want if you don't tell it
specifically which board you wanted.)
