QEMU issues the ioctl(KVM_CAP_PPC_FWNMI) on the first vCPU.

If the first vCPU is currently running, the vCPU mutex is held
and the ioctl() cannot be done and waits until the mutex is released.
This never happens and the VM is stuck.

To avoid this deadlock, issue the ioctl on the same vCPU doing the
RTAS call.

The problem can be reproduced by booting a guest with several vCPUs
(the probability to have the problem is (n - 1) / n,  n = # of CPUs),
and then by triggering a kernel crash with "echo c >/proc/sysrq-trigger".

On the reboot, the kernel hangs after:
