Some qdev block devices have support for iothreads and take care of the
AioContext they are running in, but most devices don't know about any of
this. For the latter category, the qdev drive property must make sure
that their BlockBackend is in the main AioContext.

Unfortunately, while the current code just does the same thing for
devices that do support iothreads, this is not correct and it would show
as soon as we actually try to keep a consistent AioContext assignment
across all nodes and users of a block graph subtree: If a node is
already in a non-default AioContext because of one of its users,
attaching a new device should still be possible if that device can work
in the same AioContext. Switching the node back to the main context
first and only then into the device AioContext causes failure (because
the existing user wouldn't allow the switch to the main context).

So devices that support iothreads need a different kind of drive
property that leaves the node in its current AioContext, but by using
this type, the device promises to check later that it can work with this
context.

This patch adds the qdev infrastructure that allows devices to signal
that they handle iothreads and qdev should leave the AioContext alone.
