doc: grammify "allows to"
English language grammar does not allow usage of the word "allows" directly followed by an infinitive, declaring constructs like "something allows to do somestuff" un-grammatical. Often it is possible to just insert "one" between "allows" and "to" to make the construct grammatical, but usually it is better to re-phrase the statement. This patch tries to fix 4 examples of "allows to" usage in qemu doc, but does not address comments in the code with similar constructs. It also adds missing "the" in the same line.
