Philippe Mathieu-Daudé - April 12, 2019, 4:37 p.m.
Some VGA adapters do not contain an helpful description,
this can be confusing:

  $ qemu-system-arm -M virt -vga help
  none
  std                  standard VGA
  cirrus               Cirrus VGA (default)
  vmware               VMWare SVGA
  xenfb

Add a description to the missing adapters:

  $ qemu-system-arm -M virt -vga help
  none                 no graphic card
  std                  standard VGA
  cirrus               Cirrus VGA (default)
  vmware               VMWare SVGA
  xenfb                Xen paravirtualized framebuffer
