But this is also supported when we don't probe by QMP.

This was intentionally done the way you see.  I tried to avoid using
'-machine' for various other qemu implementations (I couldn't find
anywhere that '-machine' is guaranteed on all sorts of implementations).
 This is why the following comment is in place, which you obsoleted, but
haven't removed, so it doesn't make much sense now.

Also this won't work with implementations where we don't probe by QMP,
but '-machine dump-core=xx' is supported.

There is also on pre-existing bug in my code which I see now.  When
probing by QMP, we don't set QEMU_CAPS_DUMP_GUEST_CORE flag and hence
report this as unsupported even when the qemu knows this option :(

However, I believe we have to do some more investigation and rely on
version-specific capabilities only as a last resort.  But because there
is no way to get information about ',usb=off' and more of these are
already in the code and coming, we will probably need to switch to
'-machine' anyway.

Replying to your [2/2] here as well, with what kind of configuration do
you experience such problems?  I see no problems with upstream git QEMU
(reporting itself as version 1.4.50), nor 1.4.0.

Thanks,
Martin
