I never understood why you forbid the transfer of read only bitmaps
though, can you point that out for me?
readonly bitmap - means it is not marked in_use in qcow2 file.
Hm, I don't remember exact reason, but at least for shared migration it
is unsafe to migrate readonly bitmap without special handling: we
migrate it, it becomes not-readonly, it changes in RAM, then (assume)
storing failed and we have old version ofthe bitmap in qcow2, which is
not marked in_use.. So it should be somehow carefully handled, the
simplest option is just to forbid it.
