That's an error message from RHEL qemu, and not available from upstream
qemu nor triggered by upstream libvirt (that is, a RHEL-specific
downstream patch to libvirt is attempting to use a downstream qemu
command that upstream does not have).  Have you opened a support ticket
with Red Hat?

This list is probably better suited to help if you can reproduce with
upstream versions (libvirt 1.2.4 and qemu 2.0), or at a bare minimum,
post the contents of disk.xml that is failing on you.  It's hard to say
whether the error is in libvirt (perhaps botched SELinux permissions
getting in the way?) or in qemu; but since libvirt is just parroting
qemu's error message, the investigation needs to look more at why qemu
is throwing the message.
