It's possible to include additional instructions in the deprecated file.
All lines after the first one as upgrade instructions.

This fix updates the profile deprecation warning to look like this:

!!! Your current profile is deprecated and not supported anymore.
!!! Use eselect profile to update your profile.
!!! Please upgrade to the following profile if possible:

!!! ParseError: Profile contains unsupported EAPI '5':

 * In order to update portage, run 'emerge --oneshot portage'.
