Yes, there are definitely tradeoff here. We could still make it better, though.

1. If admins trigger 'force recovery' with a special 'urgent' flag,
the recovery I/O should be done as fast as possible. In normal case,
the priority can be lower.
2. Because permanent failure is far less frequent than the temporary
failure, recovering asap seems not that urgent in most cases unless
admin trigger an "urgent" recovery like 1.
3. VDI check should not interfere the running VMs anyway, I think.
