I think we can safely return 0 without doing anything when the server
doesn't support SD_OP_DISCARD.  Actually, if the block driver doesn't
support the discard operation, bdrv_co_discard() in block.c returns 0.

This is an opcode for objects, so I prefer SD_OP_DISCARD_OBJ.

Should add coroutine_fn.
