Bug Description

Cinderlib does not support Cinder drivers that make use of the privsep library.

Originally privsep had a limitation that would serialize all requests, so slow operations would create a bottleneck, thus cinderlib decided not to use privsep and call the commands directly.

Now that privsep no longer processes requests serially, cinderlib should support it so that Cinder drivers can take advantage of it.

The effort to improve the LVM LIO target ( is blocked by cinderlib missing this feature.
