Hey Kevin,

Really cool!  I have some questions though, I've been trying to do
this exact sort of thing on my own with Cinder but can't get iscsi
daemon running in a container.  In fact I run into a few weird
networking problems that I haven't sorted, but the storage piece seems
to be a big stumbling point for me even when I cut some of the extra
stuff I was trying to do with devstack out of it.

Anyway, are you saying that this enables running the reference LVM
impl c-vol service in a container as well?  I'd love to hear/see more
and play around with this.
