So this should work and I think its generally good.

But - I'm curious, you only need a single image for devtest to
experiment with tuskar - the seed - which should be about the same
speed (or faster, if you have hot caches) than devstack, and you'll
get Ironic and nodes registered so that the panels have stuff to show.
