[pve-devel] [PATCH v7 qemu-server 07/10] fix #2318: allow phys-bits and host-phys-bits CPU settings

Can be specified for a particular VM or via a custom CPU model (VM takes
precedence).

QEMU's default limit only allows up to 1TB of RAM per VM. Increasing the
physical address bits available to a VM can fix this.
