I don't remember the gory details, but IIRC Paolo once said that when

crashes, ... or something similar. Maybe Paolo can give some details again?

In that case I'd need to remove the text from qemu-deprecated.texi
first, just to immediately add it afterwards again ... so I'd prefer to
keep this in one patch.
