I actually tested it. It's far simpler to hit than just with permission
problems. This also improves error messages for missing backing chain
members.

I was just in a hurry to post it before leaving so I forgot to add an
example of the errors:

If your disk image is missing/inaccessible/whatever :
$ virsh start dom
error: Failed to start domain dom
error: Cannot access storage file '/home/pipo/libvirt/dsdf.img' (as
uid:0, gid:0): No such file or directory

If a backing image of a file isn't accessible:
$ virsh start dom
error: Failed to start domain dom
error: Cannot access backing file '/home/pipo/libvirt/asdf.img' of
storage file '/home/pipo/libvirt/dsdf.img' (as uid:0, gid:0): No such
file or directory

And currently with a file with a unknown backing protocol:
$ virsh start dom
error: Failed to start domain dom
error: internal error: invalid backing protocol 'json'
