I've been trying to catch-up with this series of patches. Regarding #599464 
the LP-related issue (665667) uses a different patch. 

>From what I've observed there are two options:
1- Pull the patches applied to Ubuntu oneiric and pick the relevant to us + test.
2- Talk with upstream wheter they'll be releasing a point maintenace release or 
   they are focusing development on 2.0 and if that's the case we could go 
   straight to 2.0 snapshots.

I've been going the (1) route but some patches seem not compatible, mostly 
because Ubuntu also has a branch for euca2ools. We'll have to edit and test 
quite few files. Ideas?
