[Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-2.7 v2 01/17] block: Add BDRV_O_NO_LOCK

Later the block layer will automatically lock the images to avoid unexpected
concurrent accesses to the same image, which will easily corrupt the metadata
or user data, unless in some very special cases, like migration.

The exceptional cases like shared storage migration and testing should set
BDRV_O_NO_LOCK the flag indicating that the block layer should skip the
automatic locking of the image, like the old behavior.
