This is a bit more efficient than having to allocate and free memory
for each item.

The default size (60) is enough for all the existing incompatible
features or the "Unknown incompatible feature" message.

That doesn’t make sense to me.  The existing incompatible features are
known to qemu, and as such will never be printed here.

But just because it doesn’t make sense doesn’t make it wrong.  I suppose
we can assume that if new features are added, they will have a similar
length like the ones we have now.

(Well, it does make “60” a weirdly specific number, but whatever.)

((I’d just have created an empty string.  Considering this is part of
the explanation for a fatal error, nobody cares whether this function
takes a couple of microseconds more.  Or maybe a length of 47, so it can
definitely hold exactly one incompatible feature name.))

Thanks, applied to my block branch:

Existing problem: This can lead to stuff like

“Unsupported qcow2 feature(s): feat1, feat2, Unknown incompatible
feature: 0xec0”

(i.e., singular “feature” when there are multiple unknown features, and
capitalization of “Unknown”)

O:-)

But whatever.  It’s unlikely there’s going to be more than one
incompatible feature, and it’s extremely unlikely it won’t have a string
description.

I know, it's sort of an arbitrary number, I just chose a default size
that is big enough for the strings we have.

That would be fine with me as well, I don't think it matters so much
either way. Feel free to change the default size or remove the
explanation from the commit message if you want.
