I think this is patch is against an older version of libguestfs?
The current code has:

  if (optargs->bitmask & GUESTFS_DISK_CREATE_BACKINGFORMAT_BITMASK) {
    backingformat = optargs->backingformat;
    if (!VALID_FORMAT (backingformat)) {
      error (g, _("invalid value for backingformat parameter ‘%s’"),
             backingformat);
      return -1;
    }
  }

so this hunk can just be omitted.

backingformat is an optional parameter (controlled by
‘optargs->bitmask & GUESTFS_DISK_CREATE_BACKINGFORMAT_BITMASK’), so
just don't pass it, rather than defining new API.  Then ...

... here, instead of passing "autodetection" (new API), you would
conditionally set the GUESTFS_DISK_CREATE_BACKINGFORMAT_BITMASK flag
in the previous line.

What would define this?
