I've been attempting to clean up the bug tracker, one of the continued
inconsistencies that are in the Nova tracker is the use of 'Triaged'.

In OpenStack the Triaged state means the solution is provided in the bug
at enough specification that a patch can be spun. We're ignoring the
Launchpad language here specifically.

We had about 180 bugs in Triaged this morning, some untouched for 2
years. I'm moving everything that looks valid without a solution to
'Confirmed'. A bunch of other issues look like they can be invalidated
in the process (through code greps).

In future, please be careful about putting things into Triaged that
don't have a solution. Triaged should always end up as a pretty small
number of things.
