Marcelo Tosatti - Oct. 5, 2012, 5:13 p.m.
From: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@siemens.com>

Releases of qemu-kvm will be interrupted at qemu 1.3.0.
Users should switch to plain qemu releases.
To avoid breaking scenarios which are setup with command line
options specific to qemu-kvm, port these switches from qemu-kvm
to qemu.git.

Port drive boot option. From the qemu-kvm original commit message:

We do not want to maintain this option forever. It will be removed after
a grace period of a few releases. So warn the user that this option has
no effect and will become invalid soon.
