Ok so I didn't modify his code, though I took over to add more bits.

Also, I prepared everything to start tests in upstream CI:

1) Rename upgrades to updates jobs:
Rename it in openstack-infra/project-config https://review.openstack.org/351914
Rename it in tripleo-ci: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/351937
Once it's done, we'll have 2 experimental jobs for upgrading
overcloud: updates and upgrades, as we agreed in this thread.

2) Undercloud upgrade job was rebased: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/346995/
It contains some workarounds. Now the Undercloud Upgrade blueprint has
been merged, people involved in upgrade should help me in 346995 (by
review) to discuss about where we put the code that we need to

3) Overcloud update job was renamed and rebased:
It is passing CI, please review it and once it's merged, I'll propose
to move it to check queue eventually, since we don't run the OVB
updates job for all TripleO patches at this time, but only on periodic
and experimental pipelines.
Having gate-tripleo-ci-centos-7-nonha-multinode-updates-nv in the
check queue will help us to again having an update job in place for
free. This job will be useful until we get an upgrade job working.

4) Overcloud upgrade job: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/323750/
This is highly work in progress but Mathieu Bultel and I will work
together to get it working. We'll use experimental pipeline for that.
On a side note, I took the initiative to rebase it, add some bits,
create a mini TODO in the commit message and also rebase
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/321027/ useful for upgrades.

Any question or feedback is welcome!
