I have submitted a nova-spec  for improving the performance of unshelve-api.
The aim of this feature is to improve the performance of unshelve instance by
eliminating downloading/copying snapshot time.
All instance files will be retained in the instance store backed by shared or
non-shared storage on the compute node when an instance is shelved.
Please review this spec, and consider this spec for request spec freeze
