Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Config Drive: Using the OpenStack format?

Is this a format that would work for all hypervisor supported  by
cloudstack? Because openstack is highly focus on kvm.

Also,did anyone verified if that would work for coreos and
cloudbase-init(cloud-init for Windows)

Otherwise I like the idea of removing the VR dependency.
