Experiments show, that copy_range is not always making things faster.
So, to make experimentation simpler, let's add a parameter. Some more
perf parameters will be added soon, so here is a new struct.

For now, add new backup qmp parameter with x- prefix for the following
reasons:

 - We are going to add more performance parameters, some will be
   related to the whole block-copy process, some only to background
   copying in backup (ignored for copy-before-write operations).
 - On the other hand, we are going to use block-copy interface in other
   block jobs, which will need performance options as well.. And it
   should be the same structure or at least somehow related.

So, there are too much unclean things about how the interface and now
we need the new options mostly for testing. Let's keep them
experimental for a while.

In do_backup_common() new x-perf parameter handled in a way to
make further options addition simpler.

We add use-copy-range with default=true, and we'll change the default
in further patch, after moving backup to use block-copy.
