Remove Volume Manager Locks

Registered by Anthony Lee on 2015-01-23

There are currently several locks in the Cinder volume manager that could be removed:

delete_volume
delete_snapshot
detach_volume
attach_volume (lock around do_attach)

Instead of having locks for these methods, there could be checks in the Cinder API to prevent these actions from being called on volumes/snapshots that are already in a "...ING" state (creating, detaching, etc).

If an "...ING" state is detected an exception can be thrown back to the caller notifying them that the volume/snapshot action can not occur at this time because the volume/snapshot is busy.
