Issue with Qemu VM startup script

Hi all,

I have a Qemu VM that I use for when I need stuff done in Windows, which 
is not very often, but, there you go.

There is some issue with 'soundhw' being deprecated, but as someone with 
very little scripting knowledge, I don't dare try and fix it myself.

If anyone can fix it for me, I would really appreciate it.


cd `dirname $0`
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -cpu 
host,hv_relaxed,hv_spinlocks=0x1fff,hv_vapic,hv_time -m 8G -smp cores=2 
-soundhw hda -device intel-hda -device hda-duplex -audiodev 
pa,id=pa,out.mixing-engine=off,out.latency=20000 -hda windows.qcow2 -nic 
user,smb="${HOME}/" -usbdevice braille -boot c

Warm regards,

Brandt Steenkamp
