Quick check tells me that the module is used in
cinder.scheduler.filters.InstanceLocalityFilter [1]. It's a cinder-
scheduler filter that tries to schedule volumes on nodes where the
instance that is being booted will be located.

It's likely we're not exercising this filter in the gate. Can you
elaborate on what's broken in the cinder.compute.nova module and file a
bug so we can track and fix it?
