A side effect of this change that I hadn't noticed when I sent this
patch: protocol nodes have the "discard" option set to "unmap" by
default (by bdrv_inherited_options()), and that sets the BDRV_O_UNMAP

However that flag is cleared during reopen even though the "discard"
option remains there. So thanks to this patch the flag correctly
reflects the value of the option after reopen.

Is it worth sending the patch again with an updated commit message that
explains this?
