[Libguestfs] [PATCH v2 3/7] v2v: rhv-upload-plugin: Support FUA

imageio flush feature is compatible with NBC_CMD_FLAG_FUA. With flush=y,
write or zero will issue NBD_CMD_FLUSH at the end, so the call returns
only after the data is flush to storage.

The plugin reports now that it supports FUA (based on can_flush), and
when FUA flag is set, we translate it to flush query (PUT) or flag

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

Future version of imageio[1] may improve this by translating back to
single command:


qemu-img is not using FUA during conversion, but a future version may
use this feature.
