Who set SD_FLAG_CMD_CACHE for collie? user or let collie decide itself?

For Guests, SD_FLAG_CMD_CACHE is set once we start up QEMU with object
cache enabled. So we'd need to distinguish R&W requests. If we see
SD_FLAG_CMD_CACHE, sheep can simply flush and delete the cache. So this
looks extraneous for Guest request handling.
