qemu-doc: merge qemu-tech and qemu-doc
Merge what is left of qemu-tech into the main manual as an appendix. Ultimately we should have a new internals manual built from docs/, and then the "Translator Internals" parts of qemu-tech could move to docs/ as well. The bits on limitation and features of CPU emulation should remain in qemu-doc. Reviewed-by: Emilio G. Cota <cota@braap.org> Signed-off-by: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>
