KVM QCOW2 Live backup

Live backup of KVM virtual machines

This script will let you make backups of live VMs running on KVM, using libvirt.

The backup job will suspend the VM for the time it takes to copy the RAM to disk.

Edited to detect and check the image format is qcow2 using qemu-img, rather than rely on the file extension being .qcow2

An implementation of the Bjorklund algorithm in JavaScript
Inspired by the paper 'The Euclidean Algorithm Generates Traditional Musical Rhythms'
by Godfried Toussaint

This is a port of the original algorithm by E. Bjorklund which I
found in the paper 'The Theory of Rep-Rate Pattern Generation in the SNS Timing Systems' by
E. Bjorklund.
