The second dash is not missing; both '-args' and '--args' work.

'-args' seems to be favoured though; see `qemu -h' or `qemu --h' :-)

Oh, you're right. I just checked qemu-nbd/io utilities. Forget about
this change. Thanks. :-)

Actually, we're trying to fix that:
https://wiki.qemu.org/BiteSizedTasks#Consistent_option_usage_in_documentation

The one-vs-two dash usage is only supported in qemu, not in qemu-nbd or 
qemu-img (that is, qemu acts as if it uses getopt_long_only(), while the 
others use getopt_long() - except that we hand-rolled the parser in 
qemu, meaning you might find quirks where it sometimes doesn't even 
match getopt_long_only()).

At any rate, since --trace is an option that is supported across 
multiple binaries, we SHOULD favor the double-dash spelling in our 
documentation, so that you can consistently reuse the same --trace 
invocation without worrying whether the binary parses its arguments with 
getopt_long() (where double is required) or like getopt_long_only() 
(where the double is optional but supported).

So I'm in favor of this patch, although it may need more of a commit 
message summarizing the justification I've just pointed you to.

Yes, this patch is inspired by this situation when translating DPRINT into
trace for a new qemu utility (much like qemu-nbd) following docs/devel/tracing.txt.
The utility complains it don't support -trace option. So i sent this
patch after confirming this with qemu-nbd,qemu-io utilities.

Thanks for your nice explaination. If this patch could be merged i will
send V2 with a commit message.

Please update the remaining occurrences of the -trace option syntax in
v2:

  $ git grep -- -trace docs/devel/tracing.txt

Also fixing strings in trace/control.[ch] would be appropriate.
