Trim/discard is a command that allows VM to inform underlying storage system to
release unused space. Sheepdog takes use of this command to release unused
objects for better thin-provision.

This patch set aims to add trim/discard support to both Sheepdog and QEMU's
Sheepdog block driver.

There are first 3 patches for Sheepdog and the last one is for QEMU.
