Unfortunately meaning of each is fixed in API:

    VIR_DOMAIN_SHUTOFF_UNKNOWN = 0,     /* the reason is unknown */                              

    VIR_DOMAIN_SHUTOFF_CRASHED = 3,     /* domain crashed */                                     

    VIR_DOMAIN_SHUTOFF_FAILED = 6,      /* domain failed to start */

So this is definetly not FAILED. I guess we can't change meaning now also, so 
we have to use UNKNOWN and explaining reasons again is qemuProcessReconnect is
needless.

By the way how from reconnection POV failing to spawn a thread differ from any
error in qemuProcessReconnect before monitor connectiton.
