Having said that, there is probably a bug in Horizon since it's
defaulting to vda for the device name when booting from volume.
The libvirt driver in nova ignores the requested device name in boot
from volume / volume attach requests since Liberty . It's best to let
the virt driver in nova pick the device name, you can get the mountpoint
via the volume attachment later after the volume's status is 'in-use'.
