[PATCH 1/2] trace: document how to specify multiple --trace patterns

From: Stefan Hajnoczi
Subject: [PATCH 1/2] trace: document how to specify multiple --trace patterns
Date: Tue, 12 Jan 2021 16:58:58 +0000

It is possible to repeat the --trace option to specify multiple
patterns. This may be preferrable to users who do not want to create a
file with a list of patterns.

 This output comes from the "log" trace backend that is enabled by default when
 ``./configure --enable-trace-backends=BACKENDS`` was not explicitly specified.
