[PULL 7/7] accel/tcg: avoid re-translating one-shot instructions

Subject: [PULL 7/7] accel/tcg: avoid re-translating one-shot instructions

From: Alex Bennée <alex.bennee@linaro.org>

By definition a single instruction is capable of being an IO
instruction. This avoids a problem of triggering a cpu_io_recompile on
a non-recorded translation which then fails because it expects
tcg_tb_lookup() to succeed unconditionally. The normal use case
requires a TB to be able to resolve machine state.

The other users of tcg_tb_lookup() are able to tolerate a missing TB
if the machine state has been resolved by other means - which in the
single-shot case is always true because machine state is synced at the
start of a block.
