[openstack-dev] [nova][oslo] API extension policy deprecation warnings

I thought we planned for that case, but it looks like we log a warning
regardless (obviously from your trace) so that operators don't miss
opportunities to clean up code. In addition to that, the removal of a
policy might make a role obsolete, which is harder to check for than
just seeing if they have overridden the policy from a file. I can dig
into oslo.policy and see if there is a way to determine if a policy is
coming from a file or in-code.
