You'll have to refer to meson's docs and how we use it there isn't
anything automatic for the conversion.

Based on what you want to change, the equivalent of a makefile is the
'' file. Now note there are multiple '' files.

The top level has mostly dependency-related definitions. In

correct file.

Then each sub-module has their own file: e.g.
src/, src/qemu/, src/security/ etc.
