Both "qemuDomainStartWithFlags" and "qemuAutostartDomain" try to

if restoring fails, which causes data loss. (This problem exists
for "virsh managedsave dom; virsh start dom").

And keeping the saved state will cause data corruption if the
user modified his disks and restore the domain second time from
the saved state. (Problem exists for "virsh save dom; virsh
restore dom").

Based on subsequent conversation on v2, we need v4.

The fix is to:
    * Don't unlink()s the managed saved state if the restoring


    * Remove the saved state if restoring succeeded.

Drop this hunk.

If managed_save is NULL, then we should be skipping to cleanup
(qemuDomainManagedSavePath already reported OOM), rather than silently
falling back to normal startup.

No, qemuDomainObjStart is also used by qemuDomainStartWithFlags,
skipping to cleanup when managed_save is NULL will break the
starting of all domains which don't have managed state file.

That's risky.

This overwrites the error message from qemuDomainObjRestore, possibly
losing useful information.  I think you can just drop this else clause.

This makes sense. Thanks
