[Openstack] [openstack][nova][powervm] FYI: PowerVM out-of-tree driver namespace changing

Hi all. Now that we're starting the process of integrating the PowerVM
compute driver into nova[1], we're needing to change the namespace of
the out-of-tree driver[2] so OOT consumers don't run into conflicts. You
can track this change on gerrit[3].

The upshot: As you upgrade from newton to ocata, OOT nova-powervm
consumers will have to change:

  compute_driver = powervm.driver.PowerVMDriver


  compute_driver = powervm_ext.driver.PowerVMDriver

Feel free to contact us in IRC on #openstack-powervm if you have
questions or concerns.
