Ok, we have this beast in the cirrus code which is not used at all by
modern guests, except when you try to find security holes in qemu.  So,
add an option to disable blitter altogether.  Guests released within
the last ten years should not show any rendering issues if you turn off
blitter support.

There are no known bugs in the cirrus blitter code.  But in the past we
hoped a few times already that we've finally nailed the last issue.  So
having some easy way to mitigate in case yet another blitter issue shows
up certainly makes me sleep a bit better at night.

For completeness:  The by far better way to mitigate is to switch away
from cirrus and use stdvga instead.  Or something more modern like
virtio-vga in case your guest has support for it.
