bugs are there indeed to break working things... ;-)
at the end oVirt uses Qmeu/KVM and libvirt so I suppose it will run
something like this to create live snapshot:

virsh snapshot-create-as myvm snapshot1 "snapshot1 description" --disk-only

due to bug in libvirt, this command will fail in unpatched RH EL 6.6 and
oVirt will return error to the user too...

I didn't verify this bug as I don't have any 6.6 yet, but I presume the
workflow should be the one above...
