The best we could do here is to log a warning. Thankfully we have one
central function which always checks the returned JSON from qemu so we
could do that universally.

The would end up in the system log and alternatively also in the VM
log file. I agree with Kevin that the possibility of it being noticed
is rather small.

From my experience users report non-fatal messages mostly only if it is
spamming the system log. One of instances are very unlikely to be
noticed.

In my experience it's better to notify us in libvirt of such change and
we will try our best to fix it.
