** ?
*** Main Benefit: The ability to selectively disable CPU features for a guest means: newly launched VMs on a compute node can now disable offending guest CPU flags that block live migration. This facilitates live migration to a host with TSX=off.
 
*** Example: Today, a VM running on a compute node with Intel TSX=on (which is the default on all Linux kernels until v.5.11) cannot be migrated to a node with Intel TSX=off. But, the ability to selectively disable CPU flags alleviates this (and similar problems) — you can now keep TSX enabled on a host, and yet block it for the guest via `cpu_model_extra_flags`. This unblocks live-migrating the said guest to a host with TSX=off.
 
*** Notes: On relevant Intel processors, TSX is suggested to be disabled as it can be a potential security problem. TSX is disabled by default upstream Linux v.5.11 (Oct-2019)

*** elod is concerned about the backportability of this, as it has user-facing impacts. As noted by lyarwood though, the previous behavior was wrong
 
** (stephenfin) Outreachy projects?
 
*** I'm already helping mentor some NDSU students over in OSC/SDK land w/ diablo_rojo and gtema and could probably work with someone else. Do we have any nice, self-contained items that we'd like to do but just haven't had time for though?
 
*** /me thinks of things like PCI in placement (would need hardware though)
