Description of problem:
Should correct info about oa in virt-v2v-output-openstack man page

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-v2v-1.40.2-1.el7.x86_64
libguestfs-1.40.2-1.el7.x86_64


How reproducible:
100%

Steps to reproduce:
1.Check virt-v2v-output-openstack man page about oa option
# man virt-v2v-output-openstack
....
The following options are not supported with OpenStack: -oa, -of.

2.Convert a guest from vmware to openstack on conversion application of openstack with option -oa sparse
#  virt-v2v -ic vpx://root@10.73.73.141/data/10.73.75.219/?no_verify=1 -it vddk -io vddk-libdir=/home/vmware-vix-disklib-distrib -io  vddk-thumbprint=1F:97:34:5F:B6:C2:BA:66:46:CB:1A:71:76:7D:6B:50:1E:03:00:EA esx6.7-rhel7.6-x86_64 --password-file /tmp/passwd -o openstack -oo server-id=ff074bf3-51ed-4897-9a81-2ba97a69d81e -oa sparse

3.Convert a guest from vmware to openstack on conversion application of openstack with option -oa preallocated
#  virt-v2v -ic vpx://root@10.73.73.141/data/10.73.75.219/?no_verify=1 -it vddk -io vddk-libdir=/home/vmware-vix-disklib-distrib -io  vddk-thumbprint=1F:97:34:5F:B6:C2:BA:66:46:CB:1A:71:76:7D:6B:50:1E:03:00:EA esx6.7-rhel7.6-x86_64 --password-file /tmp/passwd -o openstack -oo server-id=ff074bf3-51ed-4897-9a81-2ba97a69d81e -oa preallocated
virt-v2v: error: -o openstack: -oa option cannot be used in this output 
mode

If reporting bugs, run virt-v2v with debugging enabled and include the 
complete output:

  virt-v2v -v -x [...]


Actual results:
Only -oa preallocated can't be used in v2v openstack conversion

Expected results:
Should correct info about oa in virt-v2v-output-openstack man page

Additional info:

Comment 2 Pino Toscano 2019-04-12 11:32:57 UTC
"sparse" is the only allowed choice for -oa in -o openstack, as sparse is the default mode for -oa. So in -o openstack mode:
- not specifying -oa
- specifying -oa sparse
are the same thing.  Any other value for -oa is not supported, and this is what the documentation also says.
