Thanks guys to push it:)  
But fundamentally, I don't think Libvirt doing a right thing here, libvirt should not need
to care about integrity of storage pool, as the storage pool is shared by multiple hypervisor
hosts, one libvirt is only one of them, so it's useless and error-prone, to check the files
on the storage pool.
If the integrity of storage pool is broken, then user should complain to CloudStack or other
upper layer of cloud orchestration software.
