Yes, CI is a requirement for adding  a new driver, please see:

That's a good question, I don't think that is feasible for Icehouse,
but as far as I know we haven't fully discussed how to introduce new
drivers now that we have the third party testing requirement.

An alternate option is to add FusionCompute support to libvirt, and
since nova already supports libvirt you will get nova support
