cinder i belive breaks on reboothing a devstack host but nova, keystone, horizon, glance, placment and neutron all work
fine if i remember correctly

it really would not take much to get all the service to work i have not looked at why cinder didint restart properly but
is proably something trival like a service it depens on is not enabled to start by default like tgtd or somehting
