Series backup performance: block_status + async | expand

Commit Message

Vladimir Sementsov-Ogievskiy Jan. 16, 2021, 9:46 p.m. UTC
Iotest 257 dumps a lot of in-progress information of backup job, such
as offset and bitmap dirtiness. Further commit will move backup to be
one block-copy call, which will introduce async parallel requests
instead of plain cluster-by-cluster copying. To keep things
deterministic, allow only one worker (only one copy request at a time)
for this test.
