Description: This patch adds discard support to nbd. If the nbd-server
supports discard, it will send NBD_FLAG_SEND_TRIM to the client. The client
will then set the flag in the kernel via NBD_SET_FLAGS, which tells the
kernel to enable discards for the device (QUEUE_FLAG_DISCARD).

If discard support is enabled, then when the nbd client system receives
a discard request, this will be passed along to the nbd-server. When the
discard request is received by the nbd-server, it will perform:

	fallocate(.. FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE ..)

To punch a hole in the backend storage, which is no longer needed.
