parentDocumentation: Move image format descriptions to own section (diff)
Documentation: Don't mention old qemu-img options
The old options are still supported for compatibility, but they are inconsistent (for example create -b vs. convert -B for backing files) and incomplete (-F only exists for create) which tends to confuse people. Remove all references to the old options from the documentation to guide users to the more consistent -o options. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <>
