This patch series rewrites the QEMU monitor handling almost completely.

The key theme here is to move from a totally synchronous way of
interacting with the monitor, to a totally asynchronous way. This
allows us to handle receipt & dispatch of asychronous events from
QEMU. For example a notification of a disk-full error, or VM state
change.  In the process of doing this re-factoring I have also
dropped in basic support/infrastructure for the JSON based monitor.

The basic JSON parsing/formatting is working, but this needs to
wait until QEMU community finalize their monitor syntax for the
new commands & what args they accept.
