Usually, when baselining two CPU models, whereby one of them has base
CPU features disabled (e.g. z14-base,msa=off), we fallback to an older
model that did not have these features in the base model. We always try to
create a "sane" CPU model (as far as possible), and one part of it is that
removing base features is no good and to be avoided.

Now, if we disable base features that were part of a z900, we're out of
luck. We won't find a CPU model and QEMU will segfault. This is a
scenario that should never happen in real life, but it can be used to
crash QEMU.

So let's properly report an error if we baseline e.g.:

{ "execute": "query-cpu-model-baseline",
  "arguments" : { "modela": { "name": "z14-base", "props": {"esan3" : false}},
                  "modelb": { "name": "z14"}} }

Instead of segfaulting.
