[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] RFC: Add new block driver for the VDI format

this mail will be followed by two patches which
allow QEMU to create, read and write VDI images.
VDI is the native image format of SUN's VirtualBox emulator.

The code was written from scratch for QEMU, while earlier patches
sent to Qemu-devel were wrappers for code from VirtualBox. See
for those patches.

Patch 1 adds uuid support to QEMU and can be used independent of
the second patch (look for uuid in vl.c, for example).

Patch 2 adds the VDI block driver. It only needs uuid support
when a new image is created (without uuid, it will create an image
with zeroed "uuid" values), so this second patch is semi-independent
of the first.

Please test, comment and add both patches to QEMU master
(if there are no objections).
