[Libguestfs] [PATCH] sparsify: in-place: Refuse to run on overlay files (RHBZ#1277705).



$ qemu-img create -f qcow2 -b /tmp/centos-6.img overlay.qcow2
$ virt-sparsify --in-place overlay.qcow2
virt-sparsify: error: disk image 'overlay.qcow2' appears to have a backing
file.  You should use copying mode sparsification for this file (see the
virt-sparsify(1) manual).

Thanks: Yaniv Kaul
