[Ussuri] Auto shutdown VM

from my own experience the mismatch happened when someone was playing  
with virt-manager (or other tools) to reboot/shutdown VMs through  
libvirt and not from inside the VM or via openstack. And since nova  
has to catch up at some point this led to a cycle of unwanted shutdown  
events. In my case I know that users were trying to do that via  
virt-manager, does that apply to your scenario, too? Or does libvirt  
show any error logs that would explain unexpected shutdowns?
