Ran tempest with configured with default backend i.e. LVM and was able to
the OOM issue, so running tempest without gluster against a fresh VM
recreates the OOM issue, snip below from syslog.

Feb 25 16:58:37 devstack-centos7-rax-dfw-979654 kernel: glance-api invoked
oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x201da, order=0, oom_score_adj=0

Had a discussion with clarkb on IRC and given that F20 is discontinued, F21
has issues with tempest (under debug by ianw)
and centos7 also has issues on rax (as evident from this thread), the only
option left is to go with ubuntu based CI job, which
BharatK is working on now.
