"virsh blockjob rasa vda --abort" aborts the blockcommit and then I can try 
to blockcommit again:
# virsh blockjob rasa vda --abort

# virsh blockcommit rasa vda --active --verbose --pivot
Block commit: [100 %]error: failed to pivot job for disk vda
error: block copy still active: disk 'vda' not ready for pivot yet

But it does not succeed. I tried more than 20 times.

If I shutdown VM after unsuccessful blockcommit command, I can delete 
snapshot file, edit xml and VM starts OK, but if I shutdown after blockjob 
abort command, the VM disk is unclean if I start VM without snapshot file.

I found the bug - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1197592
It seems it is still unfixed.
