Bug Description

- [x] This is a doc addition request.

This is coming up from discussion about what to document in the release notes for the libvirt VGPU reshaper work that happened in Stein:

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/644412/4/releasenotes/notes/stein-prelude-b5fe92310e1e725e.yaml@57

Specifically about the upgrade impact of VGPU inventory and allocations moving from the root compute node resource provider to a child resource provider.

The release notes and docs for VGPUs are not very clear about this change (the docs don't actually mention anything about it). So this bug is for tracking that gap.

I think it would be good to at the very least mention that starting in the Stein release, VGPU inventory and allocations are tracked on a child resource provider of the root compute node resource provider. And we could illustrate this using examples from openstack CLIs:

https://docs.openstack.org/osc-placement/latest/index.html

For example, list resource providers where there are two, one for the root compute node resource provider and one for a VGPU provider. Then list inventories on each and see there is VCPU/MEMORY_MB/DISK_GB on the compute node root provider and VGPU inventory on the child provider. Nothing fancy but something as a way to show, if you set this up correctly and things are working correctly, this is what you should expect to see.

    Add doc on VGPU allocs and inventories for nrp

    Now that we reshape inventories and allocations for VGPU resources in Stein,
    we think it's good for operators to know how to verify the resources using
    osc-placement.
