Hi Michael. Yes you are correct that the lv disk should be in use even
during reboots. I understand that you want to blast everything that is
not in use to cleanup unused lv's due to improper exits of the
vm/nodemanager.  For me it makes me a little uncomfortable allowing
the fate of all the lv's to be decided at every change in vm state.
Also, what happens during migration.

I can see arguments either way. If we blast everything every time, we
are pretty sure that the disk shouldn't have unused disk space for
extended periods granted high vm turnover on the host.  However, it
makes me nervous doing this and also may have issues during migration,
suspends, etc.

The other way we may need to have a separate thread running to check
the disk for unused vms and keep track. It maybe a nice place to put
all lv related stuff.

What are your thoughts?
