Ahh, I might have made a mistake in the usage of "Collision".
It means that a machine which has same Universally Unique IDentifier
exits in the world.
So, I checked by the command, pvdispay/vgdisplay/lvdisplay, on both original
guest and clone guest. Surely, when mount(kpartx) the images form Dom-0, the
VG names is collide, which is for a user op.
In case of cloning the original guest used LVM which is one disk wholly,
Domain-0 automatically notices the cloning guest disk of header(LVM), which
I think the problem.
