Instead of always using HMP use the QMP send-key command introduced in qemu 1.3.

I'm not sure I like adding the useQMP parameter.  That makes for a leaky
abstraction (the caller is burdened with telling us which version of a
polymorphic function to dispatch to).  What we have done in other cases
is to always dispatch to the json code, and then have the json code
_try_ the command, and if the command fails, fall back to the hmp

I saw that approach and I didn't like it thus I created this.

command.  See for example qemuMonitorJSONInjectNMI.  And if you do it
that way, you don't even need a qemu_capabilities bit, and the caller no
longer has to care about which version of monitor it is talking to.
