When record/replay does not uses overlays for storing the snapshots,
user is not capable of issuing reverse debugging commands.
This patch adds creation of the VM snapshot on the temporary
overlay image, when the debugger connects to QEMU.
Therefore the execution can be rewind to the moment
of the debugger connection while debugging the virtual machine.
