I actually suspect that this is just an old, obsolete check that we have
kept during these years. file_cluster_offset should be not just sector
aligned but also cluster aligned if I'm not wrong, and if not then
qcow2_alloc_cluster_offset() and qcow2_get_cluster_offset() should
return an error.

I can simply remove that check, or replace it with an assertion.
