Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 04/36] qapi: add BitmapSyncMode enum
Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2019 19:12:46 -0400
Message-ID: <20190816231318.8650-5-jsnow@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190816231318.8650-1-jsnow@redhat.com>

Depending on what a user is trying to accomplish, there might be a few
bitmap cleanup actions that occur when an operation is finished that
could be useful.

I am proposing three:
- NEVER: The bitmap is never synchronized against what was copied.
- ALWAYS: The bitmap is always synchronized, even on failures.
- ON-SUCCESS: The bitmap is synchronized only on success.

The existing incremental backup modes use 'on-success' semantics,
so add just that one for right now.
