> We used to have a problem for KVM snapshot creation when createSnapshot is called for
the volume of the Running vm. As a fix for that, kvm.snapshot.enabled flag was introduced.
But when this flag set to fase, it doesn't allow snapshot creation even for detached volumes
(the area where the problem didn't even exist).
> Suggested fix: kvm.snapshot.enabled should affect only case when the snapshot is being
created for the volume a) that is attached to the vm b) the vm is running/starting/stopping
states only
