Accept bitmaps and sync policies for the other backup modes.
This allows us to do things like create a bitmap synced to a full backup
without a transaction, or start a resumable backup process.

Some combinations don't make sense, though:

- NEVER policy combined with any non-BITMAP mode doesn't do anything,
  because the bitmap isn't used for input or output.
  It's harmless, but is almost certainly never what the user wanted.

- sync=NONE is more questionable. It can't use on-success because this
  job never completes with success anyway, and the resulting artifact
  of 'always' is suspect: because we start with a full bitmap and only
  copy out segments that get written to, the final output bitmap will
  always be ... a fully set bitmap.

  Maybe there's contexts in which bitmaps make sense for sync=none,
  but not without more severe changes to the current job, and omitting
  it here doesn't prevent us from adding it later.
