Eliminating this dependency would be part of the feature to allow VMs to
have their disks on multiple storage domains.

Is it possible for ovirt-engine to identify which disk is the system disk?
What should the algorithm be for determining a storage domain to
hibernate a diskless VM?
It seems like things would be simplified if we did not restrict
ourselves and could use any available storage domain regardless of
whether the vm has disks or not.
