vl: add -object option to create QOM objects from the command line
This will create a new QOM object in the '/objects' path. Note that properties are set in order which allows for simple objects to be initialized entirely with this option and then realized. This option is roughly equivalent to -device but for things that are not devices. Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>
