[Qemu-block] [PATCH v6 01/22] block: Add flag bits for image locking

Later the block layer will automatically lock the images to avoid unexpected
concurrent accesses to the same image, which will easily corrupt the metadata
or user data, unless in some very special cases, like migration.

The exceptional cases like shared storage migration and testing should
set BDRV_O_SHARED_LOCK or BDRV_O_NO_LOCK to advise an appropriate
locking mode.
