Is this actually needed once the FIXME in patch 3 is addressed and only
significant fields are considered, or can we revert the patch at the end
of the series?

Once we implement a node-named based blockdev-commit, we'll want to test
both versions here, so it would be good to be able to set a node-name
and still be able to use the filename for the older interface.
