[Qemu-block] [RFC PATCH 0/8] qemu-img convert with copy offloading

Subject: [Qemu-block] [RFC PATCH 0/8] qemu-img convert with copy offloading

[Posting a preview RFC for the general idea discussion and internal API review.
Libiscsi support is being worked on in the meantime.]

This series introduces block layer API for copy offloading and makes use of it
in qemu-img convert.

For now we implemented the operation in local file protocol with
copy_file_range(2).  Besides that it's possible to add similar to iscsi, nfs
and potentially more.

As far as its usage goes, in addition to qemu-img convert, we can emulate
offloading in scsi-disk (EXTENDED COPY), and do similar to drive-mirror.

The new bdrv_co_map_range can also be an alternative way to implement format
drivers in the future, once we make block/io.c use it in preadv/pwritev paths.

Fam Zheng (8):
  block: Introduce bdrv_co_map_range API
  qcow2: Implement bdrv_co_map_range
  block: Introduce bdrv_co_copy_range
  file-posix: Implement bdrv_co_copy_range
  file-posix: Implement bdrv_co_map_range
  raw: Implement raw_co_map_range
  block-backend: Add blk_co_copy_range
  qemu-img: Convert with copy offloading
