There’s a few patches floating around for checking features [1,2] - 
however none of these are yet committed.
For [2], there’s also an RFC mailing list thread [3].

CC’ing novel@, as he wrote those patches.

The hackish way libvirt checks for features right now is to parse error 
messages from invalid invocations of bhyve(8).
