The update that needs to happen is actually about the way the images are
built. Things changed upstream and the way we did it does not work
anymore. I did made the changes in the CI, but when I test this new
image, the tests (Tempest) always fail.

But updating the baseline would not hurt I guess, I have stuck to the
package from Ubuntu LTS as it is easier than rebuilding packages.

There is probably issues with Linux as well, probably due to the fact we
are running Xen withing a Rackspace VM.
