[libvirt] [PATCH RESEND] qdev: Make "hotplugged" property read-only

The "hotplugged" property is user visible, but it was never meant
to be set by the user. There are probably multiple ways to break
or crash device code by overriding the property. For example, we
recently fixed a crash in rtc_set_memory() related to the
property (commit 26ef65beab852caf2b1ef4976e3473f2d525164d).

There has been some discussion about making management software
use "hotplugged=on" on migration, to indicate devices that were
hotplugged in the migration source. There were other suggestions
to address this, like including the "hotplugged" field in the
migration stream instead of requiring it to be set propertly.

Whatever solution we choose in the future, this patch disables
setting "hotplugged" explicitly in the command-line by now,
because the ability to set the property is unused, untested, and
