Recent libguestfs improvements

Nothing earth-shattering …

Support for setting UUIDs on filesystems. In particular, virt-sysprep will now choose random UUIDs for each filesystem in the guest (previously it only did this for LVM2 objects).

There’s a new add-drive-scratch API (and equivalent scratch in guestfish) which creates a temporary drive which is automatically discarded when the libguestfs handle closes.

You can now use:

guestfish -N filename=fs

to select an alternate name for the prepared disk image instead of the old test1.img, test2.img etc.

And lots of bug fixes
