Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v5 5/5] startupPolicy: Emit event on disk source dropping

If a disk source gets dropped because it is not accessible,
mgmt application might want to be informed about this. Therefore
we need to emit an event. The event presented in this patch
is however a bit superset of what written above. The reason is simple:
an intention to be easily expanded, e.g. on 'user ejected disk
in guest' events. Therefore, callback gets source string and disk alias
(which should be unique among a domain) and reason (an integer);

The guaranteed unique string is disk->dst, which is required by the schema and parser to be present for all disks (from <target dev='...'> in the XML). While disk aliases are also unique, they are not part of the user's XML, and correspond only to what we create under the hood to pass to qemu. I wonder if we should go with the disk target name, rather than the disk alias. That would also match what I did for snapshots - a <domainsnapshot> prefers listing disk->dst anywhere on output where a unique name is needed.

See for example where domain_conf.c lists _virDomainSnapshotDiskDef uses char *name as its mapping back to <target dev='...'>.
