Description of problem:

VMstate json representations of older RHEL6 releases should be added to the qemu source tree.  This will facilitate checking of migration compatibility that the static checker is capable of performing.

These files will be placed in the tests/vmstate-static-checker-data/ directory.  The nomenclature, subject to change, is:


Which means this json was produced on a rhel6.0 build, with the 6.0 machine type.


means this json was produced on rhel6.1 build with the 6.0 machine type.

Since we only have one machine type option on RHEL6, this naming scheme suffices.

New test cases are to be added to the QE test plan which runs the static checker python script (most likely from the upstream tree) and ensures no regressions are being added to the development version of RHEL6.

The testing can be automated, and can be added to autotest, as well as nightly scripts.  Release maintainers can do this at git tagging time as well.

These files will be placed in the RHEL7 tree as well, to facilitate RHEL6->RHEL7 testing.
