[libvirt] [PATCHv4 39/51] snapshot: allow halting after snapshot



Since a snapshot is fully recoverable, it is useful to have a
snapshot as a means of hibernating a guest, then reverting to
the snapshot to wake the guest up.  This mode of usage is
similar to 'virsh save/virsh restore', except that virsh
save uses an external file while virsh snapshot keeps the
vm state internal to a qcow2 file.  However, it only works on
persistent domains.

In the usage pattern of snapshot/revert for hibernating a guest,
there is no need to keep the guest running between the two points
in time, especially since that would generate runtime state that
would just be discarded.  Add a flag to make it possible to
stop the domain after the snapshot has completed.

* include/libvirt/libvirt.h.in (VIR_DOMAIN_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_HALT):
New flag.
* src/libvirt.c (virDomainSnapshotCreateXML): Document it.
* src/qemu/qemu_driver.c (qemuDomainSnapshotCreateXML)
(qemuDomainSnapshotCreateActive): Implement it.
