Once implemented, to be honest, I really don't see much advantages of 
incremental backup over aforementioned mechanism(external snapshot + active 
block commit),
especially, regarding the case of source vm non-normal shutdown, full copy is 
and corresponding check mechanism is needed too.
I think so much exceptional scenarios are needed to be considered for 
incremental backup mechanism.
Maybe I missed something.
