[Qemu-devel] [patch] Misleading -net documentation

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [patch] Misleading -net documentation

User-agent: KMail/1.9.1

The qemu documentation implies that "-net user" is the default. It's actually 
"-net user -net nic". The patch below clarifies the documentation. I've also 
moved the description of the default to -net none as that seems a more 
logical place for it.
