In many cases the target of a convert operation is a newly provisioned
target that the user knows is blank (reads as zero). In this situation
there is no requirement for qemu-img to wastefully zero out the entire
device.

Add a new option, --target-is-zero, allowing the user to indicate that
an existing target device will return zeros for all reads.
