Bug Description

During the creation of a bootable volume, the driver needs to copy a Glance image to the new volume. This process can take some time as the data can be quite large. Usually 'qemu-img' is used to perform the copy. If the CinderVolume service is restarted while this operation is ongoing, the volume is pegged in a 'downloading' state and cannot be used or deleted.

    Clear volumes stuck in 'downloading'

    If the CinderVolume service is restarted while an image-copy is
    happening, the volume gets left in a 'downloading' state and
    cannot be used or deleted. This fix adds code to init_host to
    look for volumes (on this host) in such a state, and move them
    to an error state. It also calls clear_download in the driver
    in case the driver needs to perform an action, such as
    detaching the volume.

    Fixes Bug #1172645
