[Libguestfs] [nbdkit PATCH] checkwrite: Implement .can_fast_zero, .can_multi_conn



Blindly passing through the plugin's .can_fast_zero when our own .zero
never calls the plugin is fishy; rather, we can use the heuristic that
if .extents shows all zeroes, we were fast, otherwise we fail fast
rather than calling the plugin's .pread.  And since we never modify
any of the plugin's data, we can advertise multi-conn (note that it is
already unwise to use this filter with a plugin that reports different
data on read without any intervening writes, such as the info plugin).
