Clean QCOW2 image from bitmap obsolete directory when a new one
is allocated and stored. It slows down the image growth a little bit.
The flag QCOW2_DISCARD_ALWAYS allows a call to raw_co_pdiscard()
that does the actual cleaning of the image on disk.
With the flag QCOW2_DISCARD_OTHER, a reference count of the cluster
is updated only.

side question: should not we change discard_passthrough[QCOW2_DISCARD_OTHER] to
true or at least flags&BDRV_O_UNMAP by default? What is the reason of not discarding
things in qcow2-cluster?
