Bug Description

This is experimental feature, number of hosts to map onto each hash partition.
Setting it more than 1 causes couple of bugs:
1) Probability of slow running of periodical task if exclusive locking is needed.
2) Double sending of sensors data if it enabled.
3) Create configuration for netboot on >1 conductors, only one can be cleaned via ironic api.
4) If conductor dead with enabled console and active conductors >1 console processes
tries to start on "hash_distribution_replicas" conductors, we will not predict where it
will be started and there is a possibility that processes can't be stopped because API
use only one conductor for routing.

I'm good with approving this too. Since it is deprecating, I'll bring it up in our meeting if I remember...

This was discussed in the ironic meeting [1] and we agreed that this should be deprecated.
