migration: do not sent zero pages in bulk stage

during bulk stage of ram migration if a page is a
zero page do not send it at all.
the memory at the destination reads as zero anyway.

even if there is an madvise with QEMU_MADV_DONTNEED
at the target upon receipt of a zero page I have observed
that the target starts swapping if the memory is overcommitted.
it seems that the pages are dropped asynchronously.

this patch also updates QMP to return the number of
skipped pages in MigrationStats.
