[qemu-s390x] [PATCH 0/2] vfio-ccw: support hsch/csch (QEMU part)

[This is the QEMU part, git tree is available at
https://github.com/cohuck/qemu vfio-ccw-caps

The companion Linux kernel patches are available at

Currently, vfio-ccw only relays START SUBCHANNEL requests to the real
device. This tends to work well for the most common 'good path' scenarios;
however, as we emulate {HALT,CLEAR} SUBCHANNEL in QEMU, things like
clearing pending requests at the device is currently not supported.
This may be a problem for e.g. error recovery.

This patch series makes use of the newly introduced async command region
to issue hsch/csch; if it is not present, continue to emulate hsch/csch,
as before.

[I'm not quite happy with how this async processing hooks up in css.c;
ideas welcome.]

Very lightly tested (I can interact with a dasd as before; I have not
found a reliable way to trigger hsch/csch in the Linux dasd guest driver.)
