Hi, @jichen:

Something I found, FYI:
The commit history in here: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/138795

I noticed that the unquience change call to cast in PS5 and PS6:
and some comments on

According history comments, the reason of "use cast for unquience": it adds
_wait_for_snapshots_completion operation on unquience method in PS6,
it will cause the rpc timeout before snapshot finished if we use call rpc.

The reason of "use call for quience", I think is just quience is a short
operation, no need to change cast to call?
In the other word, call or cast is okay for quience operation, so, he
didn't change it.

Hope this helps, : )
