I'm working with raw lvs and created them on the destination before
starting the migration.

Actually, I've got it working now, with the --direct option and the
--p2p --direct option.
The tunneled method fails though. I'm trying to debug this now.

The first thing which strikes me as odd is in the
qemuMonitorTextMigrate function:

1173        if (qemuMonitorCommand(mon, cmd, &info) < 0) {
(gdb) p cmd
$4 = 0x7fffdc0e6ef0 "migrate  -d
(gdb) n
1180        if (strstr(info, "fail") != NULL) {
(gdb) n
1181            qemuReportError(VIR_ERR_OPERATION_FAILED,
(gdb) p info
$5 = 0x7fffe8001210 "migration failed\r\n"

Not sure if there's supposed to be a space between the migrate and the
-d option, and no space after the -b.
