This is a simple define, which allows to filter this job by ID for
third-party management
apps. What could be missed here?

Right now, there is a possibility to start this job via
get status via virtDomainGetBlockJobInfo(), but the problem is that in the
latter case,
job type is listed as "unknown" - and exactly this problem is solved by
this simple patch.
I'd like to know, that I track backup job, rather than something else.

Thank you,
