Hmm, apart from Cinder service in the said config, rest of them all
noted there are essential to get a minimal, functional DevStack --
at-least in my testing. Cinder isn't normally part of my test
environment (maybe I should add it), but I was investigating a bug in
that case, so if you don't prefer it, you can elide these:

That said, I should have defined what I consider minimal, broadly: Nova
(libvirt/KVM driver with nested virt), Neutron (OVS+GRE or VXLAN),
Keystone (with PKI), Glance.
