v1 -> v2:
    use g_rand_new() to generate rand_buf
    move RAMBLOCK_FOREACH_MIGRATABLE into migration/ram.h
    add skip_sample_ramblock to filter sampled ramblock
    fix multi-numa vm coredump when query dirtyrate
    rename qapi interface and rename some structures and functions
    succeed to compile by appling each patch
    add test for migrating vm

Sometimes it is neccessary to evaluate dirty page rate before migration.
Users could decide whether to proceed migration based on the evaluation
in case of vm performance loss due to heavy workload.
Unlikey simulating dirtylog sync which could do harm on runnning vm,
we provide a sample-hash method to compare hash results for samping page.
In this way, it would have hardly no impact on vm performance.

Evaluate the dirtypage rate both on running and migration vm.
The VM specifications for migration are as follows:
- VM use 4-K page;
- the number of VCPU is 32;
- the total memory is 32Gigabit;
- use 'mempress' tool to pressurize VM(mempress 4096 1024);
- migration bandwidth is 1GB/s

|                      |  running  |                  migrating                 
| no mempress          |   4MB/s   |          8MB/s      (migrated success)     
| mempress 4096 1024   |  1188MB/s |   536MB/s ~ 1044MB/s (cpu throttle 
triggered) |
| mempress 4096 4096   |  4152MB/s |     608MB/s ~ 4125MB/s (migation failed)   

Test dirtyrate by qmp command like this:
1.  virsh qemu-monitor-command [vmname] '{"execute":"calc-dirty-rate", 
"arguments": {"calc-time": [sleep-time]}}'; 
2.  sleep specific time which is a bit larger than sleep-time
3.  virsh qemu-monitor-command [vmname] '{"execute":"query-dirty-rate"}'

Further test dirtyrate by libvirt api like this:
virsh getdirtyrate [vmname] [sleep-time]

Zheng Chuan (10):
  migration/dirtyrate: Add get_dirtyrate_thread() function
  migration/dirtyrate: Add RamlockDirtyInfo to store sampled page info
  migration/dirtyrate: Add dirtyrate statistics series functions
  migration/dirtyrate: move RAMBLOCK_FOREACH_MIGRATABLE into ram.h
  migration/dirtyrate: Record hash results for each sampled page
  migration/dirtyrate: Compare page hash results for recorded sampled
  migration/dirtyrate: skip sampling ramblock with size below
  migration/dirtyrate: Implement get_sample_page_period() and
  migration/dirtyrate: Implement calculate_dirtyrate() function
  migration/dirtyrate: Implement
    qmp_cal_dirty_rate()/qmp_get_dirty_rate() function
