[Libguestfs] [PATCH v3 7/7] v2v: rvh-upload: Match nbdkit threads to qemu-img coroutines



qemu-img is using 8 parallel coroutines by default. I tested up to 16
parallel coroutines and it seems that 8 gives good results.

nbdkit uses 16 threads by default. Testing nbdkit with qemu-img show
that 8 threads give good results.

Make nbdkit thread count configurable, and configure it to 8 threads in
the rhv upload output.

Testing rhv-upload-plugin show small improvement (~6%) in total
connection time. Compared with last version using single connection, we
are now 50% faster.

Results are not stable, we need to test this with bigger images and real
environment.
