Hi libvirt devs!
Sheepdog have ability to specify number of copies (full replica or
erasure) for each vdi when it created,
Now xml looks like:
  <allocation unit="G">{VDI_SIZE}</allocation>
  <capacity unit="G">{VDI_SIZE}</capacity>
    <format type='unknown'/>

in case of erasure we need to specify number of strips and number of
parity strips. In case of copies - number of copies. How the best
encode this in xml?
P.S. I van to create patch for libvirt to allow this, but stuck at xml
