+        <description>
+          Recent qemu versions added image locking to avoid potential corruption
+          of disk images. This broke shareable disks with libvirt since the
+          feature was turned on by default in qemu. Libvirt now enables sharing
+          of those disks in qemu so that the image locking is not applied in
+          that case. Additionally libvirt now checks that shareable disks have
+          supported format (raw) to avoid metadata corruption.
