qapi: add qapi-commands.py code generator

This is the code generator for qapi command marshaling/dispatch.
Currently only generators for synchronous qapi/qmp functions are
supported. This script generates the following files:

$(prefix)qmp-marshal.c: command marshal/dispatch functions for each
QMP command defined in the schema. Functions
generated by qapi-visit.py are used to
convert qobjects recieved from the wire into
function parameters, and uses the same
visiter functions to convert native C return
values to qobjects from transmission back
over the wire.
$(prefix)qmp-commands.h: Function prototypes for the QMP commands
specified in the schema.

$(prefix) is used in the same manner as with qapi-types.py
