[GEDI] [PULL 10/13] exec/cpu-common: add qemu_ram_get_fd()

Add a function to get the file descriptor for a RAMBlock. Device
emulation code typically uses the MemoryRegion APIs but vhost-style code
may use RAMBlock directly for sharing guest memory with another process.

This new API will be used by the libblkio block driver so it can share
guest memory via .bdrv_register_buf().
