This patch provides support for 'joining a thread' by wrapping the POSIX
pthread_join with qemu_thread_join.

Since the backend implementation is based on threads and I am stopping
and starting that thread during operations like 'snapshot resume', I
do use this functionality to synchronize with the TPM thread's termination
before terminating the TPM, creating a new one and loading previous state
from the time of the snapshot into the TPM.
