Image helper functions

Registered by Zhongyue Luo on 2013-08-26

Modules nova/virt/images.py and cinder/image/image_utils.py contain duplicate classes and functions.

Classes:
    QemuImgInfo

Functions:
    qemu_img_info()
    convert_image()

The QemuImgInfo can be used without changes but the functions need a root_helper argument passed.

def qemu_img_info(path, run_as_root=True, root_helper=None)
def convert_image(source, dest, out_format, run_as_root=False, root_helper=None)
