[openstack-dev] [Fuel] It is impossible to queue UpdateDnsmasqTask

Hi All,

Currently we can only run one instance of subj. at time. An attempt to run
second one causes an exception. This behaviour at least may cause a cluster
to stuck forever in "removing" state (reproduces here
https://bugs.launchpad.net/fuel/+bug/1544493) or just produce
incomprehensible "task already running" message. So we need to address the
problem somehow. I see the following ways to fix it:

1. Just put the cluster into "error" state which would allow user to remove
it later.
  pros: simple and fixes the problem at hand (#1544493)
  cons: it would be hard to detect "come againg later" situation; quite a
lame behavior: why don't you "come again later" yourself.

2. Implement generic queueing in nailgun.
    pros: quite simple
    cons: it doesn't look like nailgun responsibility

3. Implement generic queueing in astute.
   pros: this behaviour makes sense for astute.
   cons: the implementation would be quite complex, we need to synchronize
execution between separate worker processes.

4. Split the task so that each part would work with particular cluster.
   pros: we don't extend our execution model
   cons: untrivial implementation; no guarantee that we are always able to
split master node tasks on per cluster basis.
