It seems a bit more nuanced than I thought: upstream vagrant-libvirt 
only supports Vagrant 1.5 to 1.8. [1]  There's also a table with build 
failures on Vagrant 1.9.1 if you scroll up.  For some reason, 1.9.3 
worked on CentOS Linux 7 with vagrant-libvirt and 1.9.4 didn't, but 
1.9.x is clearly not a supported configuration - not yet.

With KVM as the default virtualization on CentOS, fully supported, and 
VirtualBox not even packaged in our repos (not to mention kernel 
tainting), wouldn't it be better to upgrade the SCL version to another 
1.8.x version instead of the current 1.9 series?  Perhaps 1.8.6, it 
worked reliably for me for a long time and it would support both KVM and 
VirtualBox 5.1.
