Bug Description

The PCI API support was enabled for v3 but never for V2. However V2.1 is built on v3 and it includes everything in v3. So we are disabling pci support in v3. and then will renable in the v2 microversions as one of the early microversion changes.

This bug is to keep track of this work.

    Disables pci plugin for v2.1 & microversions

    The pci plugin was only ever merged into the v3 (now v2.1 microversions)
    and never the v2 API. Since v2.1 i meant to be identical to v2 it should not
    appear in v2 either.

    This change disables the pci api functionality in v2.1. It will be renabled
    soon after microversions is enabled using a microversion bump.

    Partially implements blueprint v2-on-v3-api

Is this to be done in kilo?

V3 (and therefore pci) was never "released". Do you know of anyone who actually used the pci plugin (and thus the v3 api) in deployment?

No, but the bug states it should be re-enabled soon after microversions landed. There are lots of pci code in Nova and it looks like it is actively being worked on. Maybe someone else knows.

To be clear, this will need a spec.

    Remove unused os-pci API

    The os-pci API was never part of the v2.0 API and was added
    to the v3 API, but when the v3 API turned into the v2.1 API
    which is backward compatible with the v2.0 API, the os-pci
    API was removed from v2.1. The original intent was to enable
    it in a microversion but that never happened.

    We should just delete this API since it has a number of issues

    1. It's not documented (which makes sense since it's not enabled).
    2. The PciHypervisorController just takes the compute_nodes.pci_stats
       dict and dumps it to json out of the REST API with no control over
       the keys in the response. That means if we ever change the fields
       in the PciDevicePool object, we implicitly introduce a backward
       incompatible change in the REST API.
    3. We don't want to be reporting host stats out of the API [1].
    4. To make the os-hypervisors extension work in a multi-cell environment
       we'd have to add uuids to the PciDevices model and change the API to
       return and take in uuids to identify the devices for GET requests.
    5. And last but not least, no one has asked for this in over two years.

    As a result of removing this API we can also remove the join on the
    pci_devices table when showing details about an instance or listing
    instances, which were added years ago because of the PciServerController:
