Guest debugging support for KVM (Jan Kiszka)

This is a backport of the guest debugging support for the KVM
accelerator that is now part of the KVM tree. It implements the reworked
KVM kernel API for guest debugging (KVM_CAP_SET_GUEST_DEBUG) which is
not yet part of any mainline kernel but will probably be 2.6.30 stuff.
So far supported is x86, but PPC is expected to catch up soon.

Core features are:
- unlimited soft-breakpoints via code patching
- hardware-assisted x86 breakpoints and watchpoints

Changes in this version:
- use generic hook cpu_synchronize_state to transfer registers between
user space and kvm
- push kvm_sw_breakpoints into KVMState
