Thank you for working on this!
I know it is needed to unblock development of tripleo. I have though a 
few comments inline.

I have to warn tripleo folks about any instack-only changes these days.
Please make sure each instack-only change, like Hiera overrides, has 
follow-up patches for containerized cases as well, which do not use 
instack. Otherwise, we're putting the whole containers thing under high 
risk to keep in place the regressions fixed for non-containers. That is 
dangerous, given that we disable voting for it from time to time.

For this particular case, please add it in a separate review in 
puppet/services/zaqar*. Thanks @bandini for confirming that on IRC.
