Miguel Di Ciurcio Filho - July 19, 2010, 6:25 p.m.
This patch improves the resilience of the load_vmstate() function, doing
further and better ordered tests.

In load_vmstate(), if there is any error on bdrv_snapshot_goto(), except if the
error is on VM state device, load_vmstate() will return zero and the VM will be
started with major corruption chances.

The current process:
- test if there is any writable device without snapshot support
    - if exists return -error
- get the device that saves the VM state, possible return -error but unlikely
because it was tested earlier
- flush I/O
- run bdrv_snapshot_goto() on devices
    - if fails, give an warning and goes to the next (not good!)
    - if fails on the VM state device, return zero (not good!)
- check if the requested snapshot exists on the device that saves the VM state
and the state is not zero
    - if fails return -error
- open the file with the VM state
    - if fails return -error
- load the VM state
    - if fails return -error
- return zero

New behavior:
- get the device that saves the VM state
    - if fails return -error
- check if the requested snapshot exists on the device that saves the VM state
and the state is not zero
    - if fails return -error
- test if there is any writable device without snapshot support
    - if exists return -error
- test if the devices with snapshot support have the requested snapshot
    - if anyone fails, return -error
- flush I/O
- run snapshot_goto() on devices
    - if anyone fails, return -error
- open the file with the VM state
    - if fails return -error
- load the VM state
    - if fails return -error
- return zero

do_loadvm must not call vm_start if any error has occurred in load_vmstate.

Changelog from v1
---------------
- Use -ENOTSUP instead of -EINVAL when no device supports snapshots
- Split the verification of the existance of an snapshot on the VM state device
  and the verification of the size of the saved VM state

Thanks, applied to the block branch.
