[Qemu-ppc] [PULL 02/45] vl.c deprecate incorrect CPUs topology

From: Igor Mammedov <address@hidden>

-smp [cpus],sockets/cores/threads[,maxcpus] should describe topology
so that total number of logical CPUs [sockets * cores * threads]
would be equal to [maxcpus], however historically we didn't have
such check in QEMU and it is possible to start VM with an invalid
Deprecate invalid options combination so we can make sure that
the topology VM started with is always correct in the future.
Users with an invalid sockets/cores/threads/maxcpus values should
fix their CLI to make sure that
   [sockets * cores * threads] == [maxcpus]

address@hidden -smp (invalid topologies) (since 3.1)
+CPU topology properties should describe whole machine topology including
+possible CPUs.
+However, historically it was possible to start QEMU with an incorrect topology
+where @address@hidden <= @var{sockets} * @var{cores} * @var{threads} < 
+which could lead to an incorrect topology enumeration by the guest.
+Support for invalid topologies will be removed, the user must ensure
+topologies described with -smp include all possible cpus, i.e.
