Using `pylint --generate-rcfile > pylintrc`, generate a skeleton
pylintrc file. Sections that are not presently relevant (by the end of
this series) are removed leaving just the empty section as a search
engine / documentation hint to future authors.

I am targeting pylint 2.6.0. In the future (and hopefully before 5.2 is
released), I aim to have gitlab CI running the specific targeted
versions of pylint, mypy, flake8, etc in a job.

2.5.x will work if you additionally pass --disable=bad-whitespace.
This warning was removed from 2.6.x, for lack of consistent support.

Right now, quite a few modules are ignored as they are known to fail as
of this commit. modules will be removed from the known-bad list
throughout this and following series as they are repaired.

Note: Normally, pylintrc would go in the folder above the module, but as
that folder is shared by many things, it is going inside the module
folder (for now). Due to a bug in pylint 2.5+, pylint does not
correctly recognize when it is being run from "inside" a package, and
must be run *outside* of the package.

Therefore, to run it, you must:

 > pylint scripts/qapi/ --rcfile=scripts/qapi/pylintrc
