identify openstack kvm platform on s390

Bug #1693524 reported by Scott Moser
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
OpenStack Compute (nova)

Bug Description

On i386 and amd64, openstack puts 'OpenStack Nova', into the dmi platform
information. OpenStack using kvm on s390, does not identify itself to the guest in any way.

The result is that cloud-init cannot identify it is running on openstack.

We need two things
 a.) change openstack to provide that information through libvirt on s390
     in some way.
 b.) possibly changes in qemu to pass information through that the guest
     can see. Some options here might include putting information in
     the device tree or possibly on the attached disk (model of the disk could be 'OpenStack disk XXXX').
