The work isn't entirely complete for active-active. The one last step we've had
to complete is for backend storage vendors to validate that their storage and
Cinder drivers work well when running with the higher concurrency of operations
that active-active HA would allow to happen.

As far as I'm aware, none of the vendors have enabled active-active with their
drivers as described in [1]. The other services (not cinder-volume) should be
fine, but the to complete the work we need vendors on board to support it with
the drivers.
