Description Markus Armbruster 2015-08-05 07:18:03 EDT
Description of problem:
In qemu-options.hx, the option table's @end table isn't at the end.  The options preceding get rendered correctly as <dl>.  The options after it get rendered incorrectly.  In my Firefox, this looks like


    Normally QEMU loads a configuration file from sysconfdir/qemu.conf and sysconfdir/target-ARCH.conf on startup. The -nodefconfig option will prevent QEMU from loading these configuration files at startup. 

-readconfig file

Read device configuration from file. This approach is useful when you want to spawn QEMU process with many command line options but you don’t want to exceed the command line character limit. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Observed in 6.7, but I believe it goes all the way back to 6.0.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Examine /usr/share/doc/qemu-kvm-

Actual results:
-nodefconfig and -readconfig are rendered differently.

Expected results:
-readconfig is rendered like -nodefconfig.

Additional info:
Fixed upstream in commit 3dbf2c7.  We should've backported it along with commit 
ed24cfa, but we committed an independent rewrite instead (commit 3dd83c0), and missed the fix.
