It is also the case that on Arm migration of -cpu host means you
need to know what you're doing. But also, we don't support any
kind of cross-cpu-type migration or "present cpu type A to the guest
when running cpu type B", so a lot of the things you can do on
x86 just aren't possible (yet) on Arm. The vague plan has been that
we should fill in the gaps generally in line with what x86 does.
