sun4v emulation update

Just pushed v1. No new features, just clean ups. As a part of the cleaning up process, improved memory flushes, so the v1 should be a bit faster than v0. The new version available here:

Another visible change is that the machine name is now spelt lowercase for the consistency with the other SPARC machines emulated by QEMU.

The new launch line:

sparc64-softmmu/qemu-system-sparc64 -M niagara -L /path/to/S10image/ -nographic -m 256 -drive if=pflash,readonly=on,file=/path/to/S10image/disk.s10hw2
