The chipset isn't relevant, but any VM which needs to be teleported
across CPU types has to be configured properly, limiting the CPUID
features to a compatible subset of both CPUs *before* starting the VM on
the original system.
If that's done properly then it's even possible to teleport between CPU
The synthetic CPI setting was intended to avoid many complicated issues,
but it turned out to be not usable for a number of guest OSes, as they
simply refuse to run on such all fake CPUs. So currently you have to do
the CPUID research yourself, especially if you don't want to
unnecessarily strip out features.
