Hi Morita and other developers,

If i add a QEMU/Libvirt driver(the same as Sheepdog volumes driver in
Openstack Cinder branch) to let Openstack Cinder support a new block-level
storage system, I should change following stuffs, right?

1, Add a driver file to the dir in Openstack Cinder branch(the same as
2, Change the file in Openstack Nova branch(Let libvirt attach HLFS volumes
to QEMU, the same as sheepdog),

Do I should change/add any other files for Openstack? Cloud anyone give me
some suggestions?    Thanks in advance ;-)
