Compressed clusters are not supposed to have the COPIED bit set.
"qemu-img check" detects that and prints an error message reporting
the number of the affected host cluster. This doesn't make much sense
because compressed clusters are not aligned to host clusters, so it
would be better to report the offset instead. Plus, the calculation is
wrong and it uses the raw L2 entry as if it was simply an offset.

This patch fixes the error message and reports the offset of the
compressed cluster.
