This enables the multi-threaded system emulation by default for ARMv7
and ARMv8 guests using the x86_64 TCG backend. This is because on the
guest side:

  - The ARM translate.c/translate-64.c have been converted to
    - use MTTCG safe atomic primitives
    - emit the appropriate barrier ops
  - The ARM machine has been updated to
    - hold the BQL when modifying shared cross-vCPU state
    - defer powerctl changes to async safe work

All the host backends support the barrier and atomic primitives but
need to provide same-or-better support for normal load/store
operations.
