That's true. On the other hand, we don't issue flushes anyway, so
there's little reason to ignore non-existing flushes. :-)

The only part where it might make sense is where image formats don't
open the raw image file, but actually open the image with themselves and
allocate things. qcow2 at least already sets BDRV_O_NO_FLUSH for that

In fact, the only bdrv_open() touched in this patch that doesn't have
BDRV_O_PROTOCOL set, is one instance in VMDK where it opens the backing
file to read some ID from the header. So no flush involved there.
