Bug Description

[Impact]

Zesty does not produce root.tar.gz or root.tar.xz images.
This means that for a nova lxd cloud we need some changes to support zesty images.

 * simplestreams will need to learn that lxd can support a 'squashfs' image type, and how to upload that to glance (what 'disk_format' option to put on the glance image).
 * nova-lxd will need to know that it can handle squashfs images (it may already do that)
 * nova-lxd will possibly need to do something special with that.

[Test Case]

According to comment #4, a reproducer was hard to be found.

[Regression Potential]

This part was added specifically for the Xenial backport, including:

- 455-nova-lxd-support-squashfs-images.patch (LP: #1686086)

And chances of regression are small based on the MR feedback from SEG and this particular bug already stating the issue was fixed.

TL;DR version:

We are going to fix Bionic simplestreams package and provide this Bionic simplestreams package in Ubuntu Cloud Archive for Xenial. With that, we are fixing Xenial simplestreams behavior (to work with keystone v3) only if end-user enables Ubuntu Cloud Archive.
