[libvirt] [PATCH] also allow use of XZ for Qemu image compression



While this patch stays minimal by simply adding XZ/xz to the list,
I think it would be better to remove lzma, since it uses
an inferior format (which lacks an integrity check), and
has been effectively subsumed by xz.

Let me know if you'd like that, and I'll prepare the slightly
more invasive patch.

Subject: [PATCH] also allow use of XZ for Qemu image compression

* src/qemu_driver.c (enum qemud_save_formats) [QEMUD_SAVE_FORMAT_XZ]:
New member.
[QEMUD_SAVE_FORMAT_LZMA]: Mark as deprecated.
(qemudDomainSave, qemudDomainRestore): Handle the new member.
* src/qemu.conf: Mention xz, too.
