qemu-doc: Use QEMU instead of qemu for product name
When 'qemu' was used as a product name or as a generic process name, it is now replaced by the official upper case 'QEMU'. v2: Added missing period (hint from Andreas Färber). Reviewed-by: Andreas Färber <afaerber@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Stefan Weil <sw@weilnetz.de>
