I'm not sure if you can force libvirt to create the files with a
different mask, but perhaps a workaround would be to pre-create the
files yourself with desired permissions, then tell virsh to
--reuse-external (so that libvirt no longer has to try and create the
files, and thus doesn't mess with permissions).
