virsh supports calling the underlying API; and the underlying API works
for multi-disk VMs in qemu, so that should not be your issue.  The real
question is whether the vmware driver in libvirt has been properly wired
up to obey that API on a multi-disk VM.  Unfortunately, I don't know the
answer to that, as I don't use vmware myself, but you are welcome to try
and debug and submit a patch if no one else more familiar with the
vmware driver in libvirt steps in.
