find_snapshot_using_cow() incorrectly assumed that the new snapshot
(handover-destination) was already put on the origin's 'snapshots'
list.  So it looked to make sure it didn't return the new snapshot
(handover-destination) that was being constructed via snapshot_ctr().
Originally find_snapshot_using_cow() was only ever called from
snapshot_ctr().

The new snapshot (handover-destination) doesn't get added to the
origin's snapshot list until after handover_exceptions() -- via
snapshot_resume()'s register_snapshot().

My v6 patch leverages the fact that only one snapshot with a given cow
device is on the origin's snapshots list.  So in snapshot_preresume(),
and else where, I use find_snapshot_using_cow() to determine if the
current snapshot is the handover-source (s == snap_src) or not.

Look story short, I need to change find_snapshot_using_cow() with the
following incremental patch.  I also make sure that both the
snapshot-source and snapshot-destination are not on the origin's
snapshots list at the same time by unregistering the handover-source.

I'll post v7 to include these changes (this is getting tiresome
now.. hopefully v7 will be the last rev that'll get in agk's editing
tree!?):
