[Openstack-operators] Nova 2.1 and user permissions in the policy file

Quick warning for those who are dependent on the "user_id:%(user_id)s" syntax for limiting actions by user. According to  https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1539351, this behavior was apparently not intended according to the bug report feedback. The behavior has changed from v2 to v2.1 and the old syntax no longer works.

There can be security implications also so I’d recommend those using this current v2 feature to review the bug to understand the potential impacts as clouds enable v2.1.
