As moved files tend to become low-level annoyances for a long time, I'd
like to understand why you want to move them.  The commit message says
"to ease review", which I suspect isn't the real reason.  Perhaps you
explained all that elsewhere already, but I missed it.

The end goal is to split some projects, such as qemu-ga, to standalone meson projects/subprojects. We will be able to build them independently from the rest of QEMU, and later on perhaps handle them outside of QEMU main repository. To achieve this, I first introduce a qemu-common subproject, where qapi and common units are provided. You can check https://gitlab.com/marcandre.lureau/qemu/-/commits/qga for a sneak peek at current end result.

I said "to ease review and proceed step by step" simply because there are no other changes: I don't move the rest of the qapi code & tests all together, it's in the subsequent series.
