Bug Description

This is from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=857747

Basically SELinux is disallowing kill(pid, 0) and that causes
nova.utils.cleanup_file_locks() to remove files in error

Hello Pádraig, or anyone else affected,

Accepted nova into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nova/2012.1.3+stable-20130423-e52e6912-0ubuntu1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

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.

As per the provisional Micro Release Exception granted to this package by the Technical Board, we hope this contributes toward verification of this update.
