[Qemu-block] [PATCH v2] blockdev: Print a warning for legacy drive optio

From: Thomas Huth
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH v2] blockdev: Print a warning for legacy drive options that belong to -device
Date: Fri, 12 May 2017 12:33:49 +0200

We likely do not want to carry these legacy -drive options along forever.
Let's emit a deprecation warning for the -drive options that have a
replacement with the -device option, so that the (hopefully few) remaining
users are aware of this and can adapt their scripts / behaviour accordingly.

Signed-off-by: Thomas Huth <address@hidden>
 - Check for !qtest_enabled() since tests/hd-geo-test still uses these
 - Added "addr" to the list, too
 - Also mark the options as deprecated in the documentation
