Subject: [Starlingx-discuss] Support IBRS cpu model.

Hi All:
     if install StarlingX in compute-node with cpu type  'Skylake-Server-IBRS' ,  it cannot use  'passthrough' type with keyword hw:cpu_model in favor to create instance 
     It will prompt "No valid host was found. There are not enough hosts available. computer-0: (VCpuModelFilter) Host VCPU model Skylake-Server-IBRS required Passthrough Code 501"
     After investigation ,  Libvirt 4.7.0 supports *IBRS (for example IvyBridge-IBRS, Skylake-Server-IBRS)  CPU model , but nova and meta favor does not support *IBRS CPU model yet.  
     I have made patch for nova[0] and glance[1].
      Nova[0] will support *-IBRS type vcpu when select passthrough 
      Glance[1] will add metadata to support *-IBRS in hw:cpu_model
   Please review these PRs.

Austin Sun.
