Series [PULL,01/64] block: Raise an error when backing file parameter is an empty string | expand

Commit Message

Kevin Wolf Sept. 7, 2020, 11:09 a.m. UTC
From: Max Reitz <mreitz@redhat.com>

We have to perform an active commit whenever the top node has a parent
that has taken the WRITE permission on it.

This means that block-commit's @backing-file parameter is no longer
allowed for such nodes, and that users will have to issue a
block-job-complete command.  Neither should pose a problem in practice,
because this case was basically just broken until now.

(Since this commit already touches block-commit's documentation, it also
moves up the chunk explaining general block-commit behavior that for
some reason was situated under @backing-file.)
