Subject: [PATCH] block: Fix vpc initialization of the Dynamic Disk Header
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

The Data Offset field in the Dynamic Disk Header is an 8 byte field.
Although the specification (2006-10-11) gives an example of initializing
only the first 4 bytes, images generated by Microsoft on Windows initialize
all 8 bytes.

Failure to initialize all 8 bytes results in errors from utilities
like Citrix's vhd-util which checks specifically for the proper Data
Offset field initialization.
