[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Drop --statistics from showvminfo usage information

running 'VBoxManage showvminfo <uuid|name> --statistics' throws:

| Syntax error: unknown option: --statistics

even though the option is listed in the usage instructions:

| VBoxManage showvminfo       <uuid>|<name> [--details] [--statistics]

Since svn r27822 ("Removed guest statistics interface; to be
merged with metrics.") the --statistics option is no longer
available in combination with the showvminfo option.

The attached trivial patch (against current trunk) addresses this

In case it's relevant: I hereby license my patch under
