I think the short answer is, "whatever we're running against all Nova
changes in the gate".

I expect that for some drivers, a more specific configuration is going
to be needed to exclude tests for features not implemented in that
driver.  That's fine.

Soon we also need to start solidifying criteria for what features *must*
be implemented in a driver.  I think we've let some drivers in with far
too many features not supported.  That's a separate issue from the CI
requirement, though.
