monitor: Rework modal password input (Jan Kiszka)

Currently, waiting for the user to type in some password blocks the
whole VM because monitor_readline starts its own I/O loop. And this loop
also screws up reading passwords from virtual console.

Patch below fixes the shortcomings by using normal I/O processing also
for waiting on a password. To keep to modal property for the monitor
terminal, the command handler is temporarily replaced by a password
handler and a callback infrastructure is established to process the
result before switching back to command mode.
