From: Uri Lublin <uril@redhat.com>

This patch and the next drop the requirement to lose the global qemu
mutex during dispatcher calls. This patch enables it, the next drops
the unlock/lock pairs around dispatcher calls.

The current solution of dropping the locks is buggy:
 * it allows multiple dispatcher calls from two vcpu threads, the
 dispatcher doesn't handle that by design (single fd, not locked, can't
 handle writes from two threads)
 * it requires us to keep track of cpu_single_env, which is magic.

The solution implemented in this patch and the next (the next just
drops the locks, this patch allows that to work):
 * the only operation that needed locking was qemu_create_simple_update,
 * it required locking because it was called from the spice-server thread.
 * do it in the iothread by reusing the existing pipe used for set_irq.

The current flow implemented is now:
spice-server thread:
 qxl.c:interface_get_command (called either by polling or from wakeup)
  if update!=NULL:
   waiting_for_update=0
   update=NULL
   return update
  else:
   if not waiting_for_update:
    waiting_for_update=1
    write to pipe, which is read by iothread (main thread)

iothread:
 wakeup from select,
 qxl.c:pipe_read
  update=qemu_create_simple_update()
  wakeup spice-server thread by calling d.worker->wakeup(d.worker)
