Detach and attach boot volumes

Registered by Paul Murray on 2015-09-03

At present boot volumes cannot be detached (or attached) after an instance has been created. This blueprint allows boot volumes to be detached or attached when a VM is shutdown. A VM that has had its boot volume detatched will not be bootable.
