I agree that this error message is not user-friendly. Bare virsh users
know nothing about our flags and their numerical expression. However, I
don't think there is a way how to produce "Unsupported flag
VIR_DOMAIN_BLOCK_COMMIT_DELETE" instead of "Unsupported flag 0x2" since
all we see in the qemuDomainBlockCommit() function is just number. I
mean, mapping of flag onto numeric value is not one-to-one function (aka
injective function). That is, a value 0x2 can express
VIR_DUMP_DESTROY, etc. (git grep "1 << 1," include/).

If we want to make it work, we have to introduce an injective function,
e.g. virUnsupportedFlags(), which would accept a list (not an ORed
value) of all flags that are not supported. Too much effort for not much
