Let child_file's, child_format's, and child_backing's .inherit_options()
implementations fall back to bdrv_inherited_options() to show that it

appropriate BdrvChildRole and parent_is_format values.

(Also, make bdrv_open_inherit(), the only place to explicitly call
bdrv_backing_options(), call bdrv_inherited_options() instead.)

This patch should incur only two visible changes, both for child_format
children, both of which are effectively bug fixes:

First, they no longer have discard=unmap set by default.  This reason it
was set is because bdrv_inherited_fmt_options() fell through to
bdrv_protocol_options(), and that set it because "format drivers take
care to send flushes and respect unmap policy".  None of the drivers
that use child_format for their children (quorum and blkverify) are
format drivers, though, so this reasoning does not apply here.

Second, they no longer have BDRV_O_NO_IO force-cleared.  child_format
was used solely for children that do not store any metadata and as such
will not be accessed by their parents as long as those parents do not
receive I/O themselves.  Thus, such children should inherit
