blkif: add placeholder for packet extension to block interface

While the corresponding implementation has been in our trees for quite
a while, it's in a state that doesn't make it suitable for submission,
and the original author having left the company leaves open to find
someone to complete this work. Yet to prevent problems with other
interface extensions we'd like to keep the slot in the number space
reserved for the purpose it has been serving here.
