2. invalid argument
nova.compute.manager.recover_live_migration() should follow recent nova.virt.libvirt.connection.destroy() changes.
Otherwise, it cause an TypeError.

         self.driver.destroy(instance_ref, network_info,
- block_device_info, True)
+ block_device_info)

    Partial Cherry-Pick of 52d58ad583350f2448b3971eeb3f1df541cfbfe5.

    Changes to nova.compute.manager.recover_live_migration() discarded as they are unnecessary for diablo.

Please find the attached test log from the Ubuntu Server Team's CI infrastructure. As part of the verification process for this bug, Nova has been deployed and configured across multiple nodes using precise-proposed as an installation source. After successful bring-up and configuration of the cluster, a number of exercises and smoke tests have be invoked to ensure the updated package did not introduce any regressions. A number of test iterations were carried out to catch any possible transient errors.

Please Note the list of installed packages at the top and bottom of the report.
