libvirt cannot recognize the right arch

Description of problem:
The host is i386, when a x86_64 guest is installing, it gives the following error:
This kernle requires an x86_64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU.
unable to boot, please use a kernel approximate for your CPU.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F14 x86_64 with KVM on host i686
qemu emulation might work, but there's no way that KVM can support an x86_64 guest on an i686 host. However, the converse is possible: an x86_64 host can run both x86_64 and i686 guests.
