This approach is likely to cause issues because it makes no distiction
between headers and footers.  Most image formats only have a header and
would now be misdetected if a raw image had a header in its last sector.

When a vpc image has a backing file, does it make sense to set the
bs->backing_format to "vpc"?  That way we'll try to open the backing
file as a vpc image without probing.
