Earlier in the cycle we said that we wouldn't require a spec for scaleio 
and HGST volume drivers getting into nova since they are shims that talk 
to os-brick, which is now integrated with nova (as of yesterday).

Looking at your change, this isn't talking to brick, so (1) is your 
backend connector supported in brick and (2) if so you'd need to update 
your nova change to use the os-brick connector like scaleio and HGST are 
doing now - which leaves little time to get this into Liberty at this 
point given feature freeze for nova is tomorrow.
