We've been trying keep the lists in .gitignore and Makefile in alphabetic
order. It's not really important, but seems like we should keep it now
that we've got it. Well, except I see dirty_log_perf_test and
dirty_log_test are out of order already...

This vcpu_set_cpuid() call, which causes problems for non-x86 builds,
is now embedded in vm_create_default() and therefore redundant here.


Otherwise this looks good to me. I'll try to find some time to test
it on an AArch64 machine configured to use 4k pages on the host.
