[Libguestfs] [PATCH v3 3/7] v2v: rhv-upload-plugin: Support FUA

imageio does not have a FUA flag, but we can emulate it using the flush
feature. With flush=y, write or zero will issue a NBD_CMD_FLUSH at the
end, so the call returns only after the data is flushed to storage.

The plugin reports now that it supports FUA (based on can_flush), and
when FUA flag is set, it emulates fua by setting flush query (PUT) or
flag (PATCH).

For example, this nbd command:


Is translated to this http request:

    PUT /path?flush=y

On imageio server, this translates back to:

    NBD_CMD_WRITE flags=0

Imageio server uses preallocated buffer per connection. If the write
request is bigger than the buffer, it sends multiple write commands. The
request returns only when the flush is completed.
