Ok, I have tested it,
snapshot of drive works fine,
But I don't understand how the vm state is saved.

what is the statefile argument ?
I thinked that the state was saved inside the (first) disk. (so vmstate is snapshoted and we can rollback it easily)
Or it's for doing some tests ?
I don't know if the vmstate is ok, but it seem faster to take than using the savevm command. (and also qmp socket don't timeout like with savevm)

When I tried to use loadvm, it complain that state is not available.(So we need to hack loadvm too to use external statefile)

I just uploaded a patch - I consider that experimental - I have not done any tests so far. 


What do you think - will that fit our needs?
