Following writing metadata to a QCOW2 disk image, metadata was not flushed, which could have potentially caused the disk image to become corrupted in the event of system disruption (such as a power outage). With this update, metadata is flushed after being written, thus increasing QCOW2 image integrity, and decreasing the likelihood of image corruption.
