Some CPUID functions have indicies (e.g. 0x00000004, 0x8000001d, ...)
and each existing index requires a separate entry. E.g. on my AMD EPYC
7401P host I can see:

# cpuid -r -1 | wc -l
53

Hyper-V emulation accounts for 11 leaves (we don't currently set them
all in QEMU but eventually we will). Also, we sometimes set both Intel
and AMD cpuid leaves in QEMU (David can probably elaborate on which/why)
and this all adds up. '80' seems to be an easy target to hit even with
existing CPUs :-)
