** (gmann) Specless BP approval request for RBAC community-wide goal
*** I realize this is late in the cycle, but this really helps alleviate potential live migration problems on some Intel hardware during upgrades and updates. This is technically a simple feature; but can also be considered a "bug fix" that unblocks live migration in some scenarios.
+
*** https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/policy-defaults-refresh-2
*** Main Benefit: The ability to selectively disable CPU features for a guest means: newly launched VMs on a compute node can now disable offending guest CPU flags that block live migration. This facilitates live migration to a host with TSX=off.
+
*** Nova policy audit: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Nova/rbac
*** Example: Today, a VM running on a compute node with Intel TSX=on (which is the default on all Linux kernels until v.5.11) cannot be migrated to a node with Intel TSX=off. But, the ability to selectively disable CPU flags alleviates this (and similar problems) — you can now keep TSX enabled on a host, and yet block it for the guest via `cpu_model_extra_flags`. This unblocks live-migrating the said guest to a host with TSX=off.
+
*** Commnity-wide goal : https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/governance/+/815158
*** Notes: On relevant Intel processors, TSX is suggested to be disabled as it can be a potential security problem. TSX is disabled by default upstream Linux v.5.11 (Oct-2019)

*** https://review.opendev.org/q/topic:%22bp%252Fmultiqueue-flavor-extra-spec%22+(status:open%20OR%20status:merged)
*** elod is concerned about the backportability of this, as it has user-facing impacts. As noted by lyarwood though, the previous behavior was wrong

** (pslestang) Specless BP approval request for soft deleting instance action
*** I'm already helping mentor some NDSU students over in OSC/SDK land w/ diablo_rojo and gtema and could probably work with someone else. Do we have any nice, self-contained items that we'd like to do but just haven't had time for though?
