Does the "shared" property mean virtual disks can be shared between
domains or the source of virtual disk can be shared between different
virtual disks? If it is the former, then the operation of sharing is
based on virtual disks, thus no need to care about this case.  But if
it is the latter, we indeed have to check for the "shared" property.
