The diffstat is nice, but can we retain the "please use
$NEWOPTION instead of $OLDOPTION" message for a bit?
I'm pretty sure there will be users out there who've
been happily ignoring deprecation notices, and I think
we'll reduce the amount of support traffic if they
get a new QEMU with a specific error message telling them
what they need to fix, rather than one which just prints
a generic "unknown option" message.
