However, it would be nice to remove can_write_zeroes_with_unmap from

Actually, I may even just give a shot at writing this alternative patch,
to make Kevin's decision easier.
But actually qcow2 performs some checks for version inside get_info
callback before setting can_write_zeroes_with_unmap flag,
so we can't take into account such checks in
bdrv_can_write_zeroes_with_unmap subroutine. Therefore, I don't think it
is possible to do it like that.
Here's the patch I proposed (it looks like I forgot to CC you):
Yes, it was possible to move check to open, ok, get it.
