Subject: [PATCH v9 32/34] qcow2: Allow preallocation and backing files if extended_l2 is set
Date: Sun, 28 Jun 2020 13:02:41 +0200
Message-ID: <7bc65fa80f741d90be50ab25ede29b8e27aad677.1593342067.git.berto@igalia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1593342067.git.berto@igalia.com>

Traditional qcow2 images don't allow preallocation if a backing file
is set. This is because once a cluster is allocated there is no way to
tell that its data should be read from the backing file.

Extended L2 entries have individual allocation bits for each
subcluster, and therefore it is perfectly possible to have an
allocated cluster with all its subclusters unallocated.
