[Qemu-block] [PATCH v3 00/19] nbd: add qemu-nbd --list

I got tired of debugging whether a server was advertising the
correct things during negotiation by inspecting the trace
logs of qemu-io as client - not to mention that without SOME
sort of client tracing particular commands, we can't easily
regression test the server for correct behavior.  The final
straw was at KVM Forum, when Nir asked me to make sure there
was a way to easily determine if an NBD server is exposing what
we really want (and fixing x-dirty-bitmap to behave saner fell
out as a result of answering that question).

I note that upstream NBD has 'nbd-client -l $host' for querying
just export names (with no quoting, so you have to know that
a blank line means the default export), but it wasn't powerful
enough, so I implemented 'qemu-nbd -L' to document everything.
Upstream NBD has separate 'nbd-client' and 'nbd-server' binaries,
while we only have 'qemu-nbd' (which is normally just a server,
but 'qemu-nbd -c' also operates a second thread as a client).
Our other uses of qemu as NBD client are for consuming a block
device (as in qemu-io, qemu-img, or a drive to qemu) - but those
binaries are less suited to something so specific to the NBD

Bonus: As a result of my work on this series, nbdkit now supports
NBD_OPT_INFO (my interoperability testing between server
implementations has been paying off, both at fixing server bugs,
and at making this code more reliable across difference in valid

Since v2:
- Several patches merged already
- 3 new patches based on audit of off_t vs. strtol
- rebase patches on top of other changes, such as qemu-nbd --bitmap
- address various review comments [Vladimir, Rich]
- drop patch 12/22
