Subject: [PATCH v4] add support for pci in the pvpanic driver

This patchset adds support for PCI in the pvpanic driver. The device already
got in qemu [1].

- mmio -> MMIO, pci -> PCI suggested by Randy Dunlap.
- group pvpanic-common.c and mmio.c in the same module. The intention was to
  have only one module and the common code splitted up to be re-used by the
  pvpanic-pci module in the next patch.
- add a new patch where add the licenses for the new files (when I moved the
  code to mmio.c I preserved the original licenses there)
- properly clean-up PCI device when driver removed.

- drop patch 3 with licenses and add them when creating files
- create a new patch (2/3) which allowes multiple pvpanic instances

- fix Makefile in patch 1/3 and 3/3 for pvpanic.o as suggested by Arnd

How to test:

Run a VM with latest qemu which has the pvpanic-pci device:
qemu-system-aarch64  -device pvpanic-pci

Generate a panic in the guest:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Observe in the QMP console the panic events received by the device:

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1613122186, "microseconds": 141729}, "event":
"GUEST_PANICKED", "data": {"action": "pause"}}

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1613122186, "microseconds": 141833}, "event":
"GUEST_PANICKED", "data": {"action": "poweroff"}}

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1613122186, "microseconds": 141896}, "event":
"SHUTDOWN", "data": {"guest": true, "reason": "guest-panic"}}
