[Qemu-block] [PATCH 0/4] VHD/VPC format compatibility

From: Jeff Cody
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH 0/4] VHD/VPC format compatibility
Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:47:54 -0500

This is a long-standing issue that has come up many times, and has had
several different patches posted to fix it.  Virtual PC, and Hyper-V
calculate the disk geometry differently for VHD, leading to compatibility

We want to fix these compatibility problems, however we want to make sure
we do not break backwards compatibility.

There are two areas of compatibility addressed:

* Reading images (Patch 1)
* Creating images (Patch 3)

Please see the commit messages in Patches 1,3 for details.

Jeff Cody (4):
  block/vpc: choose size calculation method based on creator_app field
  block/vpc: tests for auto-detecting VPC and Hyper-V VHD images
  block/vpc: give option to force the current_size field in .bdrv_create
  block/vpc: add tests for image creation force_size parameter
