Correct. You can cause devstack to set up cinder.conf for you by
setting CINDER_DRIVER=cinder.volume.drivers.foo.bar in local.conf
before you start devstack, or you can patch it up by hand, doesn't
make much difference.

Nope :-) Otehr than deploying your code somewhere so it can be loaded.
I'm not sure if there's any magic in devstack to apply a patch
automatically, if not then it might be a nice addition...
