I'd recommend talking with Drew Thorstensen and the IBM PowerVM team. 
They persistently worked with the nova team over a few cycles to finally 
get to the point where we agreed to bring their driver in tree, but not 
before we knew they already had open-sourced their nova driver code (the 
driver code, not the hypervisor code) and were running 3rd party CI 
against it successfully. But they are really the example now for anyone 
trying to get new virt drivers into Nova.
