Bug Description

[Impact]

nova-agent is provided by Rackspace for installation within guests that run on Rackspace Cloud. It is a collection of tools and daemons, packaged as rax-nova-agent, that ensure that the Ubuntu images published to Rackspace run properly on their platform.

Cloud platforms evolve at a rate that can't be handled in six-month increments, and they will often develop features that they would like to be available to customers who don't want to upgrade from earlier Ubuntu releases. As such, updating rax-nova-agent to more recent upstream releases is required within all Ubuntu releases, so they continue to function properly in their environment.

[Test Case]

* Ensure that upgrading from the previous version works in Rackspace's cloud including rebooting the instance
* Ensure that images created with the updated rax-nova-agent boot and operate properly in Rackspace's cloud including rebooting the instance.
* Additional tests may be performed by the CPC team, please contact them before marking the package verified.

[Regression Potential]

Latest changes included changing system initialization and networking setup which may break instance booting and setting up network connectivity potentially making the instance unreachable. The testing aims at revealing problems in those areas if there are regressions.

Tested and confirmed new agent is working as expected on Ubuntu 18.04 with multiple IP addresses on the same interface.

That probably has been done as part of validation in #3, but could we get some information whether the first two tests in the Test Case section have been performed? I assume the first one was done, but what about the freshly created image?
