Here's one of those places where I'm exploiting the pointer-equality
(rather than the more expensive STREQ) given by
virStorageFileChainLookup from patch 11; I'll add a comment in v3 so
that it is more obvious why I expect it to work.

Yay - the bulk of the time in me writing this patch was coming up with
the right interface for virStorageFileChainLookup (and then rebasing
those changes in earlier to the series) so that I had everything I needed.
