[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] Adjust block size used by dd to speed QEMU domain save operations.



See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=599091

Saving a paused 512MB domain took 3m47s with the old block size of 512
bytes. Changing the block size to 1024*1024 decreased the time to 56
seconds. (Doubling again to 2048*1024 yielded 0 improvement; lowering
to 512k increased the save time to 1m10s, about 20%)
