Bug Description

In previous releases, stx-nova was patched to support option concurrent_disk_operations. This limited parallelism of heavy I/O download operations (e.g. image convert, glance downloads) and was set to 2. This option is not available in stable/stein but equivalent functionality is provided by option max_concurrent_disk_ops. See commit:
https://review.opendev.org/#/c/609180/

We should investigate taking advantage of the nova feature to handle heavy i/o stress scenarios. Note that nova defaults the feature to off so we'll need to override it to the desired setting.

I haven't observed a test scenario where this is problem yet so that would also have to be established.

Marking as stx.3.0 as this is likely a good nova feature to explore using in stx. But this doesn't sound critical enough to hold up stx.2.0
