Bug Description

On systemd plaftorms like rhel 7.1, /var/lock/cinder gets removed upon reboot and will cause cinder volume to fail.

Change cinder to be more inline with what nova and neutron recommend, just base the lock path from the state path.

Example from nova: https://github.com/stackforge/cookbook-openstack-compute/blob/master/attributes/default.rb

# The lock_path normally uses /var/lock/nova, but it's not allowed in openSUSE,
# so setting lock_path to $state_path/lock like in Neutron.
default['openstack']['compute']['lock_path'] =

Also, the permissions on this need to be 755 not 700.

This problem does not exist in other components? like glance, heat, ceilometer etc.

    Fix lock_path to be based upon state path

    On some recent platforms, systemd based, the /var/lock/ path gets
    cleaned up at reboot and causes issues for projects like cinder.
    Nova and neutron changed long ago to base the lock path off the
    state path, this change does the same thing now for cinder.
