When I wrote this Wiki page, I tested it only with regular QCOW2 files
on EXT4 file system.

To see what libvirt is sending to QEMU, you can enable the debug log
filters, which can give some clue:

- In /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf, set these config attributes

    log_filters="1:libvirt 1:qemu 1:conf 1:security 3:event 3:json 3:file 
3:object 1:util"

- Restart libvirtd:

    $ systemctl restart libvirtd

- Perform your `blockcommit` test.

PS: A gentle reminder -- when reporting upstream, you'll likely better
help if you at least test with the latest releases (libvirt-3.1.0, and
QEMU 2.8), if not from Git.
