I did not follow all the complexities (host-engine-related and others)
but for your latter question, the suggestion is to write a
before_ifcfg_write hook, as defined in https://gerrit.ovirt.org/44552 .
Here's an example for such a hook script
which makes sure that whatever Vdsm wants to do to your ifcfg files, you
have the final word about what's written there.
