There are 2 types of properties really.

typedef struct DeviceClass {
    Property *props;

These are printed by QMP's device-list-properties. Machine is not a device
so we do not see them.

struct ObjectClass
    GHashTable *properties;

These are printed by qom-list/get but these QMP commands take path as an
argument and therefore require instances, not classes.

DeviceClass::props migrate to ObjectClass::properties in device_initfn.

So I guess we will either need to:
- merge all the properties to Object/ObjectClass or
- rename&teach device-list-properties to work with objects rather than
devices or
- add qom-list-properties which will only print QOM properties.

The latter is fairly simple, I'll post an rfc patch in few minutes, it will
do like this:
