QMP: Introduce commands documentation
One of the most important missing feature in QMP today is its supported commands documentation. The plan is to make it part of self-description support, however self-description is a big task we have been postponing for a long time now and still don't know when it's going to be done. In order not to compromise QMP adoption and make users' life easier, this commit adds a simple text documentation which fully describes all QMP supported commands. This is not ideal for a number of reasons (harder to maintain, text-only, etc) but does improve the current situation. To avoid at least divering from the user monitor help and texi snippets, QMP bits are also maintained inside qemu-monitor.hx, and hxtool is extended to generate a single text file from them.

+ QMP Supported Commands
+ ----------------------
+
+This document describes all commands currently supported by QMP.
+
+Most of the time their usage is exactly the same as in the user Monitor, this
+means that any other document which also describe commands (the manpage,
+QEMU's manual, etc) can and should be consulted.
+
+QMP has two types of commands: regular and query commands. Regular commands
+usually change the Virtual Machine's state someway, while query commands just
+return information. The sections below are divided accordingly.
+
+It's important to observe that all communication examples are formatted in
+a reader-friendly way, so that they're easier to understand. However, in real
+protocol usage, they're emitted as a single line.
+
+Also, the following notation is used to denote data flow:
+
+-> data issued by the Client
+<- Server data response
+
+Please, refer to the QMP specification (QMP/qmp-spec.txt) for detailed
+information on the Server command and response formats.
+
+NOTE: This document is temporary and will be replaced soon.
+
+1. Regular Commands
+===================
+
+Server's responses in the examples below are always a success response, please
+refer to the QMP specification for more details on error responses.
