ACK because this causes upgrade problems when using migration. Applications
like OpenStack use migration as their upgrade mechanism. ie to upgrade a new
version of Nova, you would install it on a new compute host and migrate your
guests across. For nova to fix its buggy usage, users would have to upgrade
Nova in-place on existing nodes which is contrary to its normal practice of
using migration for all upgradess
