RHEL 5 OpenStack volume enumeration

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Issue

It appears that after an OpenStack volume detachment, the device name is not freed. i.e., a volume with device /dev/vdb is not freed after detachment, and a subsequent volume attachment will take /dev/vdc instead of /dev/vdb.
