 Hum, looking at the current code now I see

    .poolOptions = {
        .formatFromString = virStorageBackendLogicalPoolFormatFromString,

So there is an initialization of the field. It's unclear to me if
the two should be OR'ed, or should be kept as-is,  if we have the pool
name do we need to provide the pool device then ? I get a bit confused

  Whoops !! :-)
That one applied cleanly.
So at least I'm commiting this part.
