------------
-
-Atomically operate on one or more block devices.  Operations that are
-currently supported:
-
-    - drive-backup
-    - blockdev-backup
-    - blockdev-snapshot-sync
-    - blockdev-snapshot-internal-sync
-    - abort
-    - block-dirty-bitmap-add
-    - block-dirty-bitmap-clear
-
-Refer to the qemu/qapi-schema.json file for minimum required QEMU
-versions for these operations.  A list of dictionaries is accepted,
-that contains the actions to be performed.  If there is any failure
-performing any of the operations, all operations for the group are
-abandoned.
-
-For external snapshots, the dictionary contains the device, the file to use for
-the new snapshot, and the format.  The default format, if not specified, is
-qcow2.
-
-Each new snapshot defaults to being created by QEMU (wiping any
-contents if the file already exists), but it is also possible to reuse
-an externally-created file.  In the latter case, you should ensure that
-the new image file has the same contents as the current one; QEMU cannot
-perform any meaningful check.  Typically this is achieved by using the
-current image file as the backing file for the new image.
-
-On failure, the original disks pre-snapshot attempt will be used.
-
-For internal snapshots, the dictionary contains the device and the snapshot's
-name.  If an internal snapshot matching name already exists, the request will
-be rejected.  Only some image formats support it, for example, qcow2, rbd,
-and sheepdog.
-
-On failure, qemu will try delete the newly created internal snapshot in the
-transaction.  When an I/O error occurs during deletion, the user needs to fix
-it later with qemu-img or other command.
-
-Arguments:
-
-actions array:
-    - "type": the operation to perform (json-string).  Possible
-              values: "drive-backup", "blockdev-backup",
-                      "blockdev-snapshot-sync",
-                      "blockdev-snapshot-internal-sync",
-                      "abort", "block-dirty-bitmap-add",
-                      "block-dirty-bitmap-clear"
-    - "data": a dictionary.  The contents depend on the value
-      of "type".  When "type" is "blockdev-snapshot-sync":
-      - "device": device name to snapshot (json-string)
-      - "node-name": graph node name to snapshot (json-string)
-      - "snapshot-file": name of new image file (json-string)
-      - "snapshot-node-name": graph node name of the new snapshot (json-string)
-      - "format": format of new image (json-string, optional)
-      - "mode": whether and how QEMU should create the snapshot file
-        (NewImageMode, optional, default "absolute-paths")
-      When "type" is "blockdev-snapshot-internal-sync":
-      - "device": the device name or node-name of a root node to snapshot
-                  (json-string)
-      - "name": name of the new snapshot (json-string)
-
