Thanks for starting this thread. My point about this patch is, as "volume
clone" is part of the core requirements [1] every Cinder drive must
support, I don't see a need for a feature flag. The feature flag already
exists, but that doesn't mean we should encourage its usage.

Now, if this really helps the NFS driver (although I don"t know why we
couldn't support clone with NFS)... I don't have a strong opinion on this

I -1ed the patch for consistency: I agree that there should be a minimum
set of features expected from a Cinder driver.
