[Libguestfs] Do we need a rebase bug for RHEL 7.4?

Hi Pino,

$subject -- do we intend to rebase libguestfs, virt-v2v and virt-p2v
in RHEL 7.4?  If yes, we should file the rebase bug soon.


 - The RHEL 7.3 package has 151 patches on top of 1.32.6.  Rebasing
   would get almost all those patches.  Not rebasing would mean (at
   predicted growth rate) shipping ~300-400 patches.

 - Backporting patches is currently hard work since the code bases of
   1.32 & 1.33/1.34 have diverged significantly in many areas.

 - We have none of Roman's v2v patches in RHEL 7.3, and it would be
   good to get all of those in 7.4 when we have the luxury of testing
   everything properly.


 - Another large rebase.

 - Maybe others, I need to look at the detailed changes in 1.32->1.34.
