maint: Include bug-reporting info in --help output
These days, many programs are including a bug-reporting address, or better yet, a link to the project web site, at the tail of their --help output. However, we were not very consistent at doing so: only qemu-nbd and qemu-qa mentioned anything, with the latter pointing to an individual person instead of the project. Add a new #define that sets up a uniform string, mentioning both bug reporting instructions and overall project details, and which a downstream vendor could tweak if they want bugs to go to a downstream database. Then use it in all of our binaries which have --help output. The canned text intentionally references http:// instead of https:// because our https website currently causes certificate errors in some browsers. That can be tweaked later once we have resolved the web site issued. Signed-off-by: Eric Blake <eblake@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: Daniel P.
