The tests/c-api/ tests use certain fixed size disks, to make those
tests run quickly (if we had to create new disks for every test,
they'd run very slowly indeed).

The fixed disk sizes are described here:

  http://libguestfs.org/guestfs.3.html#adding-tests-for-an-api-action

If you want to write a more complicated test that requires a larger
disk, then you should put it into tests/btrfs/ instead.

In generator/actions.ml, leave the `tests' field out, and add a
`tests_excuse' line explaining that the tests are located in
tests/btrfs/.

Rich.
