Please add documentation of the new syntax of the -T option, so that it
shows up in --help output (I'd ask for it in the man page, too, except
qemu-io doesn't seem to have one).

With just this patch applied, I still see in 'qemu-io --help':

  -T, --trace FILE     enable trace events listed in the given file

which doesn't tell me how to turn on particular trace events, vs. the
more useful details in 'qemu-system-x86_64 --help':

-trace [[enable=]<pattern>][,events=<file>][,file=<file>]
                specify tracing options

It is okay to just say "see qemu(1) man page for full description" (the
way we did for the --object option), rather than copy-and-paste a
paragraph that might go out of sync over time.
