Key injection failure on boot


Sometimes when I boot a bunch of vms seconds apart, using the key_name argument, some instance will not have its key injected. I found a bug ticket marked "won't fix" with a comment from Vish that key injection was for "developer convenience"[1]. Of course the personality argument could also be used to inject the file. This is odd because key_name is a documented part of nova client, as the files mechanism. So what is the recommended way to do what the key_name argument is documented to do?

I think if key_name is not intended to work it should be removed from nova client.
