Inspired by Linux's spelling check, QEMU could also add the similar
support in to help ease the burden on trivial's
maintainers ;-).

QEMU's is mainly based on an older version of Linux's, so this RFC ports Linux's codespell-related functionality
to QEMU.

This RFC contains mainly the following work:
* Added default typo dictionary "selling.text". When using,
  it will be based on selling.txt for typo checking.
* Added "--codespell" and "--codespellfile" options for enhanced spell
  checking. The former will use either the system dictionary or a python
  dictionary for spell checking, while the latter allows the user to use
  a customized dictionary.
* Based on the QEMU typo statistics from v7.0.0 to v8.2.0-rc2, updated
  the default dictionary "selling.txt" to be more in line with QEMU
  developers' "typo habits".

Thanks and Best Regards,
