[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 02/24] specs/qcow2: do not use wording 'bitmap heade

From: Vladimir Sementsov-Ogievskiy
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 02/24] specs/qcow2: do not use wording 'bitmap header'
Date: Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:10:14 +0300

A bitmap directory entry is sometimes called a 'bitmap header'. This
patch leaves only one name - 'bitmap directory entry'. The name 'bitmap
header' creates misunderstandings with 'qcow2 header' and 'qcow2 bitmap
header extension' (which is extension of qcow2 header)
