Bug Description

To reproduce:

1. cinder create 5
2. cinder snapshot-create <volume id from 1>
3. cinder create --snapshot-id <snapshot id from 2> 1

Note that we are creating a 1G volume from a snapshot of a 5G volume

Resulting volume does go to error state but should the api not check the snapshot size when initial request is received and reject it due to invalid size?
