migration: notify migration state before starting thread
The migration thread runs outside the QEMU global mutex when possible. Therefore we must notify migration state change *before* starting the migration thread. This allows registered listeners to act before live migration iterations begin. Therefore they can get into a state that allows for live migration. When the migration thread starts everything will be ready. Without this patch there is a race condition during migration setup, depending on whether the migration thread has already transitioned from SETUP to ACTIVE state.
