[Qemu-block] [PULL 20/21] nbd/client: Work around 3.0 bug for listing me

From: Eric Blake
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PULL 20/21] nbd/client: Work around 3.0 bug for listing meta contexts
Date: Mon, 21 Jan 2019 16:49:06 -0600

Commit 3d068aff forgot to advertise available qemu: contexts
when the client requests a list with 0 queries. Furthermore,
3.0 shipped with a qemu-img hack of x-dirty-bitmap (commit
216ee365) that _silently_ acts as though the entire image is
clean if a requested bitmap is not present.  Both bugs have
been recently fixed, so that a modern qemu server gives full
context output right away, and the client refuses a
connection if a requested x-dirty-bitmap was not found.

Still, it is likely that there will be users that have to
work with a mix of old and new qemu versions, depending on
which features get backported where, at which point being
able to rely on 'qemu-img --list' output to know for sure
whether a given NBD export has the desired dirty bitmap is
much nicer than blindly connecting and risking that the
entire image may appear clean.  We can make our --list code
smart enough to work around buggy servers by tracking
whether we've seen any qemu: replies in the original 0-query
list; if not, repeat with a single query on "qemu:" (which
may still have no replies, but then we know for sure we
didn't trip up on the server bug).
