Looking into virArchFromHost() I can see uname() called which is then
passed to virArchFromString(). In here, uname machine (which is
equivalent to 'uname -m' from shell) is compared against virArchData array:

So what you are saying is that 'uname -m' reports arm64 and not aarch64?
If that's the case then we should revisit the patch you mention.
