qemu-timer: Introduce clock reset notifier

QEMU_CLOCK_HOST is based on the system time which may jump backward in
case the admin or NTP adjusts it. RTC emulations and other device models
can suffer in this case as timers will stall for the period the clock
was tuned back.

This adds a detection mechanism that checks on every host clock readout
if the new time is before the last result. If that is the case a
notifier list is informed. Device models interested in this event can
register a notifier with the clock.
