[Libguestfs] [PATCH 6/6] v2v: nbdkit: Match qemu-img number of parallel coroutines



qemu-img is using 8 parallel coroutines by default. I tests 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.

I think for rhv upload plugin matching the number of threads to the
number of connections would be optimal. We need to improve this later to
use the optimal number for the configured input and output plugins.

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.
