Keep CGNS file compatible with HDF5-1.8

Description

The recent merge of CompactStorageRev branch into develop is definitely a good improvement; however, it includes a call to `H5Pset_file_space_strategy()` which seems to make the files incompatible with HDF5-1.8 clients. Even though `H5Pset_libver_bounds()` is called with the `H5F_LIBVER_V18` arguments, the resulting files are not readable by HDF5-1.8.X clients and there is no warning that this is the case.

I would like an option to force the files to be compatible with 1.8 even though it may cause a performance hit, or maybe there is a way to make the files compatible without the hit.. We have a few clients (e.g. ParaView) which cannot yet read 1.10.X format files.
