$forcemachine is not in QEMU version format, it contains a machine type (with a version at the end), e.g.: "pc-i440fx-6.1+pve0". 'min_version' cannot handle that.

I think this could go into the outer if as well, so it shortcircuits for i440fx.
Or even just change:

   (!defined($conf->{machine}) || $conf->{machine} =~ m/^(?:pc|q35|virt)$/)
to
   (defined($conf->{machine}) && $conf->{machine} eq 'q35')

as the default can never be q35.

Considering the 'meta' property is supposed to be generic and might see more use in the future, I'd put this in a seperate function, 'add_qemu_version_fixups' or so.
