        Here's a new series of patches mainly to fix qemu_announce_self()
with -netdev as discussed earlier on the list.

        I would have liked to have split the series in three, but there
would be conflicts between each, so here goes:

  1) Patches 01 to 05 - net.c cleanups

     These patches continue the job of moving net backends from net.c
     to individual files in the net/ directory

  2) Patches 06 to 39 - fix qemu_annonuce_self()

     The basic issue is that we need a sane way of iterating all the
     NICs on the system, obtaining the MAC address for each and
     inject a packet from each.

     The series splits out the per-device-type data from VLANClientState
     into a new structure called NetClientInfo. It further allows devices
     to inherit from VLANClientState and introduces a NICState struct
     and qemu_new_nic() constructor for NICs.

     That's a huge amount of churn just to fix qemu_announce_self(), but
     I think the end result is a very nice cleanup to the net API.

  3) Patches 40 to 44 - misc fixes

     Some small misc networking fixes, including the two posted by
     Pierre Riteau earlier.

        I've given all this quite a bit of compile and runtime testing
and it seems in good shape.
