Ok, I didn't know that, but I had another idea: the command could accept
either a single cpu index or a list:

  { "execute": "inject-nmi", "arguments": { "cpus": 2 } }

  { "execute": "inject-nmi", "arguments": { "cpus": [1, 2, 3, 4] } }

This has the feature of injecting the nmi in just some cpus, although I'm
not sure this is going to be desired/useful.

If we agree on this we'll have to wait because the monitor doesn't currently
support "hybrid" arguments.
