Note that 'block-commit' and 'drive-mirror' commands are used by libvirt
in the pre-blockdev era. In those instances we gather statistics of
block devices by nesting in the output of query-blockstats and
query-block rather than selecting the appropriate info by any other
means (e.g. by node name).
This means that the output MUST stay consistend when block jobs are used
and the hack this patch is deprcating will break those.
Note that in libvirt we don't plan to invest time to add workarounds for
non-blockdev cases since blockdev by itself is complex enough and I'd
strongly prefer not having a third code path to care about.
Given that -blockdev can't be used in all cases (e.g. for sd-cards)
which also blocks deprecation of -drive I don't think that hiding of
implicit filter nodes can be deprecated until -drive is deprecated.
