These functions make the internal s390 cpu model API independent from a specific accelerator:

int s390_set_processor_props(S390ProcessorProps *prop)
if (kvm_enabled()) {
return kvm_s390_set_processor_props(prop);
return -ENOSYS;

It's called by:

s390_select_cpu_model(const char *model)

which is itself called by:

S390CPU *cpu_s390x_init(const char *cpu_model)
S390CPU *cpu;

cpu = S390_CPU(object_new(s390_select_cpu_model(cpu_model)));

object_property_set_bool(OBJECT(cpu), true, "realized", NULL);

return cpu;

So above s390_set/get_processor_props() the code is accelerator independent.
