PPC/KVM: make iothread work

When running with --enable-io-thread the timer we have doesn't help,
because it doesn't wake up the CPU thread. So instead we need to
actually kick it.

While at it I refined the logic a bit to not dumbly trigger a timer
every 500ms, but rather do it more often after an interrupt got injected....

Do not stop VM if emulation failed in userspace.

Continue vcpu execution in case emulation failure happened while vcpu
was in userspace. In this case #UD will be injected into the guest
allowing guest OS to kill offending process and continue.

KVM: Rework VCPU state writeback API

This grand cleanup drops all reset and vmsave/load related
synchronization points in favor of four(!) generic hooks:

- cpu_synchronize_all_states in qemu_savevm_state_complete
(initial sync from kernel before vmsave)...

PPC: tell the guest about the time base frequency

Our guest systems need to know by how much the timebase increases every second,
so there usually is a "timebase-frequency" property in the cpu leaf of the
device tree.

This property is missing in OpenBIOS....

PPC: Add timer when running KVM

For some odd reason we sometimes hang inside KVM forever. I'd guess it's
a race condition where we actually have a level triggered interrupt, but
the infrastructure can't expose that yet, so the guest ACKs it, goes to
sleep and never gets notified that there's still an interrupt pending....

target-ppc: fix ppc32 kvm build

My segment sync patch broke compilation on PPC32, because it was trying to
sync the SLB even though ppc32 CPUs don't have an SLB.

So let's only sync it when we're on a PP64 one!

target-ppc: Get MMU state on register sync

While x86 only needs to sync cr0-4 to know all about its MMU state and enable
qemu to resolve virtual to physical addresses, we need to sync all of the
segment registers on PPC to know which mapping we're in.

So let's grab the segment register contents to be able to use the "x" monitor...

Use correct input constant

440 and desktop codes use different input constants for interrupt indication.

Let's use the respective ones for KVM.

Set PVR in sregs

We need to tell the kernel about some initial CPU state we don't have yet,
so let's use the "sregs" IOCTL for that and simply put the Processor Version
Register in there.

Now the kernel knows which guest CPU to virtualize.

target-ppc: Enable KVM for ppcemb.

Implement hooks called by generic KVM code.

Also add code that will copy the host's CPU and timebase frequencies to the
guest, which is necessary on KVM because the guest can directly access the
timebase.
