Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 4/4] snapshot: merge pre-snapshot checks

Both system checkpoint snapshots and disk snapshots were iterating
over all disks, doing a final sanity check before doing any work.
But since future patches will allow offline snapshots to be either
external or internal, it makes sense to share the pass over all
disks, and then relax restrictions in that pass as new modes are
implemented.  Future patches can then handle external disks when
the domain is offline, then handle offline --disk-snapshot, and
finally, combine with migration to file to gain a complete external
system checkpoint snapshot of an active domain without using 'savevm'.

You will run into merge problems when rebasing this patch on top of the block-commit series (especialy the patch changing driver type string into enum). I merged it already and will post it so you don't have to do that.
