When writing a new board, adding device which uses other devices
(container) or simply refactoring, one can discover the hard way
his machine misses some devices. In the case of containers, the
error is not obvious:

  $ qemu-system-microblaze -M xlnx-zynqmp-pmu
  ERROR:/source/qemu/qom/object.c:454:object_initialize_with_type: assertion failed: (type != NULL)
  Aborted (core dumped)

And we have to look at the coredump to figure the error:

  (gdb) bt

  #2  0x00007f847961fb53 in  () at /lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0

  #8  0x000055c4bc95f6d2 in main (argc=<optimized out>, argv=<optimized out>, envp=<optimized out>) at /source/qemu/vl.c:4479

Since the caller knows the type name requested, we can simply display it
to ease development.

With this patch applied we get:

  $ qemu-system-microblaze -M xlnx-zynqmp-pmu
  qemu-system-microblaze: missing object type 'xlnx.zynqmp_ipi'
  Aborted (core dumped)

Since the assert(type) check in object_initialize_with_type() is
now impossible, remove it.
