We are going to publish copy-before-write filter. So, user should be
able to create it with blockdev-add first, specifying both filtered and
target children. And then do blockdev-reopen, to actually insert the
filter where needed.

Currently, filter unshares write permission unconditionally on source
node. It's good, but it will not allow to do blockdev-add. So, let's
relax restrictions when filter doesn't have any parent.

Test output is modified, as now permission conflict happens only when
job creates a blk parent for filter node.
