This is a stupid one. Now that bdrv_append() doesn't swap the meaning of
its parameters any more, the snapshotting code makes the wrong node

The more important point, though, is probably that qemu-iotests never
tries to write to an image after taking an internal snapshot. Perhaps we
should port the monitor to qemu-io (BenoƮt had some patches to add it to
qemu-nbd, which should be similar; except that a "qmp" command in
qemu-io could even be simpler), so we can test monitor commands more
thoroughly without launching a full qemu (which allows to use the
monitor commands in isolation, but mostly means that we don't do a lot
of actual I/O).

Anyway, patch below.
