block: add drive_backup HMP command
Make "drive_backup" available on the HMP monitor: drive_backup [-n] [-f] device target [format] The -n flag requests QEMU to reuse the image found in new-image-file, instead of recreating it from scratch. The -f flag requests QEMU to copy the whole disk, so that the result does not need a backing file. Note that this flag *must* currently be passed since the other sync modes ('none' and 'top') have not been implemented yet. Requiring it ensures that "drive_backup" behaves like "drive_mirror".
