This patch broke restoring not-running VMs using libvirt-0.8.7 with qemu-0.14: 
When the domain is not running while taking a snpshot, the sn.vm_state_size 
== 0:

2021        } else if (sn.vm_state_size == 0) {
(gdb) print sn
$6 = {id_str = "1", '\0' <repeats 126 times>, name = "pre-update-flash", '\0' 
<repeats 239 times>, vm_state_size = 0, date_sec = 1302698007, date_nsec = 
711909000, 
  vm_clock_nsec = 0}

Previously the qcow2 image was still reverted to the old state, so on the next 
start of the domain the qcow2 image would be in the state of the snapshot

Now the qcow2 image is not reverted and when the domain is started, it is NOT 
in the state of the snapshot.

I can't decide if this regression is an Qemu bug or libvirt should be adapted 
to this new behavior.

I found the Bug also reported with Ubuntu and created a Bug in our own German 
bugtracker:
