This series introduces an infrastructure to remove anonymous devices from qdev.
Anonymous devices are one of the big gaps between qdev and QOM so removing is
a prerequisite to incrementally merging QOM.

Besides the infrastructure, I also converted almost all of the possible PC
devices to have unique names.  Please not that naming is not a property of
devices but rather of the thing that creates the devices (usually machines).

The names are ugly but this is because of the alternating device/bus hierarchy
in qdev.  For now, the names use '::' as deliminators but I think Jan has
convinced me that down the road, we should use '/' as a deliminator such that
the resulting names are actually valid paths (using a canonical path format).
