This series marks restore of an inactive qemu snapshot while there is
managed saved state as risky due to the reasons explained in patch 1 and
3. Patch 2 is a simple reformatting of the documentation with no other
changes in preparation of addition of more reasons why reverts might
need to be forced.

Changes from v2:
- fix manpage typo exising -> existing
- change manpage qemu hypervisor name case to QEMU

Changes from v1:
- reword error message to "error: revert requires force: snapshot
  without memory state, removal of existing managed saved state strongly
  recommended to avoid corruption"
- add documentation of the new behaviour

Michael Weiser (3):
  qemu: Warn of restore with managed save being risky
  docs: Reformat snapshot-revert force reasons
  docs: Add snapshot-revert qemu managedsave force
