[Qemu-trivial] [PATCH v2 3/3] qemu-io: Extended "--cmd" description in u

From: Maria Kustova
Subject: [Qemu-trivial] [PATCH v2 3/3] qemu-io: Extended "--cmd" description in usage text
Date: Tue, 18 Mar 2014 09:59:19 +0400

It's not clear from the usage description that "--cmd" option accepts its 
argument as a string, so any special symbols have to be quoted from the shell.
Updates in usage text:
 - Specified parameter format for "--cmd" option.
 - Added an instruction how to get help for "--cmd" option.
