QEMU enable the dirty ring feature by specifing the "-accel" sub-parameter.
https://lore.kernel.org/qemu-devel/20210108165050.406906-10-peterx@redhat.com/
Libvirt use "-machine accel=kvm" option to specify the accelerator by default,
which is incompatible with above option.

This patch introduce the "dirty_gfn_count" sub-parameter of the "-machine"
in the way that the commit "23b089" has done. So that Libvirt can enable this
feature by adding "-machine dirty_gfn_count=xxx" to the QEMU command line.

Libvirt should switch to "-accel kvm" instead.  The "-machine" options 
for accelerators are legacy and now there is a better mechanism.  There 
will never be a version of QEMU that supports dirty ring and doesn't 
support "-accel kvm", so it's easy for Libvirt to detect when to use 
"-accel".
