That part of the code was intended to be funtionally identical to what
QEMU's previous built-in storage migration code would do. I don't want
to see the semantics of that change, because it makes libvirt behaviour
vary depending on which QEMU version you are using.

If that logic is not right for a particular usage scenario, applications
are expected to provide the "migrate_disks" parameter.

So you want zero disks migrated. Simply don't ask for storage migration in
the first place if you don't have any disks to migrate.
