Ah I see, this is a slightly different problem.  If this is RHEV-H /
ovirt-node then that's a bug in ovirt-node since it is supposed to
have a working libguestfs.

Can you paste the full, unedited output of:

  libguestfs-test-tool

on the hypervisor.

I'm not sure about this, but I guess the hooks that Itamar pointed to
before should work.
