I stand (slightly) corrected: it looks like -dtb was added in qemu 1.1
(qemu commit 379b5c7), which means we DO need -help scraping for that
version of qemu.  Then, since it predates when QMP queries are reliable,
you can get away with blindly setting QEMU_CAPS_DTB when targetting a
qemu new enough to support QMP queries without actually having to query
for it.  But it's still something to be fixed before this patch is ready :)
