[lxc-users] Nova-lxd plugin installation

Hi Brian,

I tried the suggestions on a host running Ubuntu 16.04.5 LST and 
OpenStack Queens devstack installation with LXD/LXC 3.0.1 (its storage 
backend was zfs). However, I wasn't able to recognize the nova-lxd 
driver with OpenStack. Thus, I tried to do "a configuration bruteforce" 
to see how does the current situation looks like. So we can see that 
LXD/LXC 2.O.X is best supported (you can create a virtual machine 
without a volume), however, it doesn't support GPUs for example -> 
LXD/LXC 3.X is a better choice.

On the other hand, a zfs storage backend causes lots of problems. I 
spent some time to fix it somehow, but I just swapped an error for 
another error (maybe I did something wrong, all in all, this is my 
experience with the zfs storage backend). Thus, I was curious, how the 
other configurations are supported and the results are summarized at the 
previous mail.

Now, I think I need a help with choosing the best configuration for 
LXD/LXC 3.X and how to run it properly. There are too many options and I 
would like to avoid playing with all of them.
