Bug Description

Ubuntu Precise in the XCP Paravirtualized VM and OpenStack Grizzly from Ubuntu Cloud Archive

The package nova-compute-xcp does not contain the file /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf

This results to nova-compute being unable to run because the upstart script /etc/init/nova-compute.conf tries to start nova-compute with the following command:
exec start-stop-daemon --start --chuid nova --exec /usr/bin/nova-compute -- --config-file=/etc/nova/nova.conf --config-file=/etc/nova/nova-compute.conf

No error is logged so it is a bit hard to track down the cause of the problem.
If one runs manually nova-compute, the error is obvious:

# /usr/bin/nova-compute --config-file=/etc/nova/nova.conf --config-file=/etc/nova/nova-compute.conf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nova-compute", line 74, in <module>
