[libvirt] [BUG] qemu internal snapshot with raw image not aborted


If the running VM contains a floppy, creating snapshot fails internally, but 
the error is not detected by libvirt. Success is still reported to the user 
success, who will see the snapshots, even they are NOT created.

virsh # qemu-monitor-command --hmp winxp-1  savevm \"test\"
Device 'drive-fdc0-0-0' is writable but does not support snapshots.

virsh # snapshot-create-as winxp-1 test
Domain snapshot test created

Since there is no QMP command in qemu, libvirtd sends a HMP command to the 
running QEMU and parses the returned text. There only the following 4 strings 
are detected as errors:

src/qemu/qemu_monitor_text.c:2822 # qemuMonitorTextCreateSnapshot()
"Error while creating snapshot"
"No block device can accept snapshots"
"Could not open VM state file"
"Error" + "while writing VM"

Since none of them match the above message, libvirts thinks the command 

libvirt-0.9.12 but also exists in git, QEMU 1.1.2
