The original file of a snapshot needs only read access,
but QEMU tries read/write access and fails.

Variants of above command using -hda or -drive
also fail with the same error message.

I did not test whether the regression affects other
kinds of images, too. Maybe only raw images trigger
no longer work.

... because before that it was working like this:

open("/dev/sda", O_RDWR|O_SYNC|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 EACCES
open("/dev/sda", O_RDONLY|O_SYNC|O_CLOEXEC) = 10

BTW, because of other bugs in the middle of the history you need a command line "-hda /dev/null -drive file=/dev/sda,snapshot=on" to bisect it.
