I don't remember the gory details, but IIRC Paolo once said that when
you live-migrate from a QEMU version < 1.3 and then reboot the guest, it
crashes, ... or something similar. Maybe Paolo can give some details again?

In that case I'd need to remove the text from qemu-deprecated.texi
first, just to immediately add it afterwards again ... so I'd prefer to
keep this in one patch.
