[libvirt] [PATCH 2/5] qemu: blockcopy: Explicitly assert 'reuse' for block devices



When copying to a block device, the block device will already exist. To
allow users using a block device without any preparation, they need to
use the block copy without VIR_DOMAIN_BLOCK_COPY_REUSE_EXT.

This means that if the target is an existing block device we don't need
to prepare it, but we can't reject it as being existing.

To avoid breaking this feature, explicitly assume that existing block
devices will be reused even without that flag explicitly specified,
while skipping attempts to create it.

qemuMonitorDriveMirror still needs to honor the flag as specified by the
user, since qemu overwrites the metadata otherwise.
