[et-mgmt-tools] [PATCH] Adding the option "--nodiskcopy" for virt-clone



Hi,

I make a patch added "--nodiskcopy" option for virt-clone.

When this option is specified, only changing and defining
a XML is done, and read/write copying is not done. When a user wants to use a ready-made snapshot product and so on not a normal copy(read/write) at the time of device copying, I think that this option is effective. It may be faster than
normal copying.

A user uses in the following.
1)Take snapshot
  A user takes snapshot which becomes R/W volumes
  (e.g. split-mirror way). It depends on a product.

2)Take clone having --nodiskcopy option
  #virt-clone -o original -n clone -f /dev/snapshot_sysvol
                                   -f /dev/snapshot_data1
                                   -f /dev/snapshot_data2
                                   --nodiskcopy
