After some discussions at the Nova midcycle we threw together an 
approach where we just always allow privsep-helper from oslo.rootwrap.


We did a sniff test of this, and it worked to roll over the upgrade 
boundary, without an etc change, and work with osbrick 1.4.0 (currently 
blacklisted because of the upgrade issue). While I realize it wasn't the 
favorite approach by many it works. It's 3 lines of functional change. 
If we land this, release, and bump the minimum, we've got the upgrade 
issue solved in this cycle.

Please take a look and see if we can agree to this path forward.
