[libvirt] [PATCH v3] vl.c deprecate incorrect CPUs topology



-smp [cpus],sockets/cores/threads[,maxcpus] should describe topology
so that total number of logical CPUs [sockets * cores * threads]
would be equal to [maxcpus], however historically we didn't have
such check in QEMU and it is possible to start VM with an invalid
topology.
Deprecate invalid options combination so we can make sure that
the topology VM started with is always correct in the future.
Users with an invalid sockets/cores/threads/maxcpus values should
fix their CLI to make sure that
   [sockets * cores * threads] == [maxcpus]

v3:
  - more spelling fixes (Andrew Jones <drjones redhat com>)
  - place deprecation check after (sockets * cores * threads > max_cpus) check

v2:
  - spelling&&co fixes (Andrew Jones <drjones redhat com>)
