If an image references a backing file that doesn't exist, qemu-img info fails
to open this image. Exactly in this case the info would be valuable, though:
the user might want to find out which file is missing.

This patch introduces a BDRV_O_NO_BACKING flag to ignore the backing file when
opening the image. qemu-img info is the first user and provides info now even
if the backing file is invalid.
