The storage volume refresh is a little bit tricky.  We call it for some APIs but
not for all of them.  The root cause of this bug is that the uid/gid stored
internally in libvirt and what's actually set for that storage could be

To fix this for all that reports we would need to update the internal uid/gid
while security driver modifies those uid/gid.  The refreshVol shouldn't be
needed unless someone makes modification without libvirt and needs to update
internal state.  In general, if we change something, we should now about that.
