I wonder if this is a libvirt bug. Looks like it. The error comes from 
rbd_diff_iterate() (or rbd_diff_iterate2 if compiled against newer 
librbd). Anyway, a callback is passed to the itreate() function and from 
librbd code it looks like if the callback returns a negative value then 
an error is signalized from the iterate() function. Well, we're passing 
a callback that does nothing but return an error. This might be a 
possible fix then:

diff --git i/src/storage/storage_backend_rbd.c w/src/storage/storage_backend_rbd.c
index f8c968e682..08f8123678 100644

      */
     *(int*) arg = 1;
-    return -1;
+    return 0;
 }
 
 static int



Can you please give it a try?

Thanks,
Michal
