As long as each drvFOO.html page then has a further link back to the
underlying technology, I think this would be okay.  However,

drvqemu.html was the very first one I checked, and I couldn't find any
mention of wiki.qemu.org on that page.

I'd feel more comfortable with a v2 of this patch that has each driver
page give a prominent link to the technology it is wrapping, to replace
the links we are removing from the front page.
