GlusterFS snapshot code uses new qemu-img arguments

Bug Description

The GlusterFS snapshot code introduced in Havana uses arguments for qemu-img (--backing-chain and --output=json) that are newer than the versions of qemu-img that Cinder is generally expected to support.

Additionally, some code was added to parse qemu-img output rather than using the well-tested image_utils methods which do this today.

This code should not call qemu-img --backing-chain or --output=json, and should leverage image_utils as much as possible for the work being done with qemu_img.

    Do not use qemu-img --backing-chain or --output=json

    Initial code for GlusterFS snapshot support in Havana
    used qemu-img arguments which are too new to run in many
    environments. Run qemu-img using only arguments which
    will exist on older platforms.

    GlusterFS: Use image_utils for qemu-img calls

    Code added for GlusterFS snapshot support in Havana included
    new code to parse qemu-img output. This removes this code
    and uses image_utils qemu_img_info instead.

    Add test to image_utils for parsing a different style of
    qemu-img info output.

    Improve GlusterFS driver test coverage with tests for cloning,
    create from snapshot, and initialize_connection.
