Bug Description

Cinderlib is sometimes incorrectly thinking that it's running inside a container for the RBD driver.
The detection needs to be improved, as some systems may have '/proc' st_dev higher than 4 even when running the process out of a container.

A better detection is probably checking /proc/1/mounts and checking if / is using something from /var/lib

    RBD: Fix containerized detection

    Our detection mechanism of when we are running containerized has false
    positives, so we are not also checking /proc/1/mounts to see if the root
    directory is mounted from /var/lib/, which is the case when running
