Well, as far I know qemu is compatible to a rather old version of the
vmware svga.  The xorg-x11-drv-vmware driver can handle the device just
fine, so I guess it is worth checking whenever there is more information
about these commands in the driver source code.

First, maybe the driver actually uses these commands on old devices
(when the kms driver doesn't load due to missing capabilities).

Second, being more specific than just "deprecated" would be useful if
possible (command replaced by $foo in device revision $bar).  That goes
into the "nice to have" bucket though.
