ThinLVMVolumeDriver missing upgrade path from Grizzly

Bug Description

Users with volume_driver=cinder.volume.drivers.lvm.ThinLVMVolumeDriver will find that this driver no longer exists after upgrading to Havana.

Normally this is handled by adding an entry to MAPPING in volume/, but for this driver, we must also set "lvm_type=thin" as well as "volume_driver=...LVMISCSIDriver".

Fix proposed to branch: master

IMO this should be addressed via documentation, in other words open a docs issue for it and address it there. I don'b believe take-up on LVM-Thin was great enough to have a very significant impact (especially since there was no official package supporting it on 12.04 LTS).

I realize there may be customers that are using this, but I think it's fair to document in the release notes and in the Havana docs that this has changed. Continuing to MAP drivers names forever seems to be getting cumbersome.

Should probably fix this for havana-rc1 if possible.

Well, IMO, we can remove this mapping in Icehouse. But I think it makes sense for Havana.

    Allow upgrade from Grizzly with ThinLVMVolumeDriver

    In Grizzly, LVM thin provisioning was used by setting
    volume_driver=...ThinLVMVolumeDriver. In Havana this
    functionality has moved under the standard LVM driver
    with the option "lvm_type=thin" used to enable it.

    We should account for the old volume_driver class path
    so that the volume service behaves as expected for users
    upgrading from Grizzly ThinLVM configurations.
