Although "default" is possible for input, on output it's dropped.

The usage of the INT64_MAX doesn't happen until at least QEMU 3.1.  We
don't know when this will be supported though since -blockdev is
required and that's not yet in libvirt.

Because this is 0 that means supplying "default" in the XML is not
possible since the only way to Format the data is when
metadata_cache_size is present.
