Actually, I am working on NBD based storage migration. That is
nbd-server-* command family (run on dst) + drive-mirror (run on src).
There is similar prerequisite - the files on dst MUST have at least the
same size as on src. So I will implement main idea of this patch anyway.
However, when I'm done I think this one will be longer no needed.
The thing is - I need a slightly more general migration cookie - to
negotiate if NBD feature is used and on which port.

IOW - I am not saying no one shall look at your patch, but maybe we
should wait a while until I post my patches and see if they cover yours.
