[Qemu-block] [PULL 02/21] qemu-img: Improve commit invalid base message

From: Max Reitz
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PULL 02/21] qemu-img: Improve commit invalid base message
Date: Sun, 12 Feb 2017 02:34:21 +0100

When trying to invoke qemu-img commit with a base image file name that
is not part of the top image's backing chain, the user receives a rather
plain "Base not found" error message. This is not really helpful because
it does not explain what "not found" means, potentially leaving the user
wondering why qemu cannot find a file despite it clearly existing in the
file system.

Improve the error message by clarifying that "not found" means "not
found in the top image's backing chain".
