Upstream qemu 1.3 is adding two new monitor commands, 'drive-mirror'
and 'block-job-complete'[1], which can drive live block copy and
storage migration.  Additionally, RHEL 6.3 had backported an earlier
version of most of the same functionality, but under the names
'__com.redhat_drive-mirror' and '__com.redhat_drive-reopen' and with
slightly different JSON arguments, which we can support without too
much extra effort.

I know that it's convenient to have this in the upstream release as it would remove the need to backport that feature every time. Said this, I still don't like the idea dragging this stuff into the upstream code as upstream would be responsible for supporting that from the time it went in.

I am willing to give in on this if somebody else thinks that it would be beneficial, but right now I'm not convinced that we want this upstream.
