Subject: [PATCH 18/20] block: extend block-commit to accept a string for the backing file

O-Subject: [PATCH qemu-kvm-rhev RHEL7.0.z 2/4] block: extend block-commit to accept a string for the backing file
Bugzilla: 1122925
RH-Acked-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

On some image chains, QEMU may not always be able to resolve the
filenames properly, when updating the backing file of an image
after a block commit.

For instance, certain relative pathnames may fail, or drives may
have been specified originally by file descriptor (e.g. /dev/fd/???),
or a relative protocol pathname may have been used.

In these instances, QEMU may lack the information to be able to make
the correct choice, but the user or management layer most likely does
have that knowledge.

With this extension to the block-commit api, the user is able to change
the backing file of the overlay image as part of the block-commit
operation.

This allows the change to be 'safe', in the sense that if the attempt
to write the overlay image metadata fails, then the block-commit
operation returns failure, without disrupting the guest.

If the commit top is the active layer, then specifying the backing
file string will be treated as an error (there is no overlay image
to modify in that case).

If a backing file string is not specified in the command, the backing
file string to use is determined in the same manner as it was
previously.

(cherry picked from commit 54e269009099cdc9483be115f1e12d56ad459c5e)

Conflicts:
	qapi/block-core.json

RHEL7 Notes: Conflict is due to qapi json being divided into separate
             files upstream; downstream in RHEL7 it is still in a single
             json file.
