Older versions of libvirt can work with this new RBD format as long
as librbd supports format 2, something that all recent versions of
librbd do.

How recent? It might be nicer to mention the version number.

Also, the patch no longer applies.

I sent a revised version of the patch to the list last week. The commit message now shows the librbd versions required and it also applies to master again.

Could you take a look at it again? It would really help the Ceph project.

Thanks a lot!

This will fail 'make syntax-check' as it's not indented properly, see:

It would also be easier to read if compared against LIBRBD_VERSION(0, 1, x),
instead of 260.

Can these numbers be represented by more descriptive constants from librbd
header files?
