From: Thomas Huth <thuth@redhat.com>

The '-usbdevice' option is considered as deprecated nowadays and
we might want to remove these options in a future version of QEMU.
So mark this options as deprecated in the documenation and print out
a warning if it is used to tell the user what to use instead.
While we're at it, improve also some other minor USB-related spots
in qemu-options.hx that were not up to date anymore.
