[libvirt] [PATCH rfc 0/1] storage: vzstorage storage pool

This is first draft, that supports vzstorage in storage pools.i
Virtuozzo Storage is a fault-tolerant distributed storage system, optimized
for virtualization workloads.
Vzstorage pool supports the same volume formats as directory, nfs, etc.
In terms of volume management - there is no difference between these pools.
You can find more information here: https://openvz.org/Virtuozzo_Storage
<pool type='vz'>
  <capacity unit='bytes'>0</capacity>
  <allocation unit='bytes'>0</allocation>
  <available unit='bytes'>0</available>
      <host name=''/>
      <device path='vz7-vzstorage'/>
      <dir path='/pool1'/>
To compile libvirt with vz pool support use key --with-storage-vz

I need some help to resolve some problems:
- how to detect that pool is alredy mounted.
- when we show pool sources do we need to show folders that may reside on vzstorage
- I am not quite sure that we need host name in xml.

I will be glad to here your opinion.
