Really great, thanks a lot Jinzhi! I'm not familiar with OpenStack and
cannot allocate time for it, but I hope your patches can be accepted

BTW, the Cinder driver of sheepdog is an urgent matter. All Cinder
drivers must have their own third party CI:
The deadline is March 19th. If the CI server isn't provided, the
driver is dropped.

If you can provide the CI server for the sheepdog driver, I'm really
glad (requirements:
http://ci.openstack.org/third_party.html#requirements). In addition,
if you (or your colleagues) can be a maintainer of the driver, it will
be really helpful for us. Are you interested in Cinder?
