Limiting each loop iteration of qemu-img map to 1 GB was arbitrary from
the beginning, though it only cut the maximum in half then because the
interface was a signed 32 bit byte count. These days, bdrv_block_status
supports a 64 bit byte count, so the arbitrary limit is even worse.

On file-posix, bdrv_block_status() eventually maps to SEEK_HOLE and
SEEK_DATA, which don't support a limit, but always do all of the work
necessary to find the start of the next hole/data. Much of this work may
be repeated if we don't use this information fully, but query with an
only slightly larger offset in the next loop iteration. Therefore, if
bdrv_block_status() is called in a loop, it should always pass the
full number of bytes that the whole loop is interested in.

This removes the arbitrary limit and speeds up 'qemu-img map'
significantly on heavily fragmented images.
