This series aims to fix several bugs in VMPort and improve it by supporting
more VMPort commands and make command results more configurable to
user via QEMU command-line.

This functionality was proven to be useful to run various VMware VMs
when attempting to run them as-is on top of QEMU/KVM.

For more details, see commit messages.


* Fix coding convention [Patchew Bot & MST].
* Create new header file for vmport.h [MST].
* Move KVM_APIC_BUS_FREQUENCY from linux-headers/asm-x86/kvm.h
  auto-generated header [MST]
* Elaborate more that vmx-version refers to the VMware userspace
  VMM in commit message. [MST]
* Use le32_to_cpu() on BIOS_UUID vmport command. [MST]
* Introduce VMPort compatability version property to maintain migration
  compatibility. [MST]

- Repalce VMPort compatability version property with multiple boolean
  compatability properties. [MST]
- Prefix "vmx-*" properties with "vmware-vmx-*" to avoid confusion with
  Intel VT-x short name. Prefix suggested by MST. [MST]
- Remove VMX_Type enum and instead hard-code default vmware-vmx-type
  value and only reference open-vm-tools for rest of values. [MST]
- Add reference (link) to VMware open-vm-tools code. [MST]
