introduce -cpu host target

Although the guest's CPUID bits can be controlled in a fine grained way
in QEMU, a simple way to inject the host CPU is missing. This is handy
for KVM desktop virtualization, where one wants the guest to support the
full host feature set.
Introduce another CPU type called 'host', which will propagate the host's
CPUID bits to the guest. Unwanted bits can still be turned off by using
the existing syntax (-cpu host,-skinit)
