[RFC 7/7] migration: call qemu_savevm_state_pending_exact() with the gue

From: Juan Quintela
Subject: [RFC 7/7] migration: call qemu_savevm_state_pending_exact() with the guest stopped
Date: Mon, 3 Oct 2022 05:16:00 +0200

HACK ahead.

There are devices that require the guest to be stopped to tell us what
is the size of its state.  So we need to stop the vm "before" we
cal the functions.

It is a hack because:
- we are "starting" the guest again to stop it in migration_complete()
  I know, I know, but it is not trivial to get all the information
  easily to migration_complete(), so this hack.

- auto_converge test fails with this hack.  I think that it is related
  to previous problem.  We start the guest when it is supposed to be
  stopped for convergence reasons.

- All experiments that I did to do the proper thing failed with having
  the iothread_locked() or try to unlock() it when not locked.

- several of the pending functions are using the iothread lock
  themselves, so I need to split it to have two versions (one for the
  _estimate() case with the iothread lock), and another for the
  _exact() case without the iothread_lock().  I want comments about
  this approach before I try to continue on this direction.
