WIP: Don't merge, yet.

Add vm config machine and vm config cpu based on output from the current vm config qemu. Make network drivers dependent on vm config qemu and vm config machine. Add validate and suggest to vmconfiger so that we can check the values for vm configs and suggest their values.

Also adds vm config cores.

Fixes #910, #911, and #1016.

minimega,vmconfiger: smarter qemu checks
Add `vm config machine` and `vm config cpu` based on output from the
current `vm config qemu`. Make network drivers dependent on `vm config
qemu` and `vm config machine`. Add `validate` and `suggest` to
vmconfiger so that we can check the values for `vm config`s and suggest
their values.

Fixes #910, #911, #1016.
minimega: improve QEMU CPU detection
For qemu-arm which is different than qemu-x86/amd64.
minimega: fix bug with QEMU CPU detect
Need to include machine name in "name". Update example with actual
minimega: fix relative path to qemu
Try to resolve non-absolute qemu path using $PATH.
minimega: fix wrong index
Used wrong index for CPU fields.
minimega: add `vm config cores`
Looks like I did not add it earlier like I thought that I had.

Not sure the network driver detection is correct. kvm -net nic,model=? returns a different list than kvm -device driver=?. We should probably use the latter.

See note here.

minimega/qemu: split, change NIC code
Split the qemu capabilities code out into its own package. Add tests
based on predefined output. Change NIC code so that it pulls from
`-device` rather than `-nic` since we use `-device` when creating NICs
in minimega.
qemu: fix bug with NICs
Using old (wrong) command.
tests: update vm_config_save
Adds new fields and new default.
