Thanks for tracking this down.

Actually, I'd rather fix qemu_driver.c to guarantee that format is
always non-NULL (omitting the format argument means that qemu either
probes the file or hard-codes a default, and that carries risk, since in
the past, we've had CVEs where autoprobing of a raw file can mistakenly
result in treating the file as qcow2 and cause SELinux labeling of
unintended files).

I'll propose a counter-proposal patch later this morning.  Let's wait
until we have both patches to compare before deciding which one to push.
