This is basically the same as https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1417667 but this one is slightly more general, so I will mark the other one as a duplicate of this.

So after investigating this - it seems that there is really not that much work that needs to be done all the information is passed in to the filter, it's just that we mangle the request_spec and filter_properties dicts so much, and the keys are so generic, that it is really difficult to make sense of it without following the code all the way from the API.

Because of this it would probably be good to add a method that basically says - when inside a filter - give me a flavor I should be looking at right now.
