Disk cache mode get set to cache='none' for ephemeral disk on ceph with disk_cachemodes="network=writeback"

Solution Verified - Updated -


When disk_cachemodes="network=writeback" is set as cache mode, attached cinder volumes get attached with cache=writeback.
This got fixed with BZ1482921 . With the same setting ephemeral disk on ceph storage is set to cache=none.
As a result disk performance is not as good as with cache=writeback.
