I've sent the email below to the OpenStack users mailing list trying to
get feedback from users on what to do with the GridFS driver.

We haven't had bugs filed on this driver nor users have provided any
feedback. This all leads me to think that it's actually not being used
at all. With that in mind, I propose marking this driver as deprecated
in Kilo.

I wonder if we could simply remove it based on the above _assumption_

I'm reaching out to see if anyone is using Glance's GridFS store driver
and has any feedback. The driver has been updated with the latest API
changes but no fixes or feedback has been received.

If no one is using it, I'll propose removing it for the Kilo release.
Drivers require maintenance, hence lots of time.
