Convert image to RAW

Since we’re using ceph RBD, RAW format image will significantly boost up VM start up time, QCOW2 image works though but you lost the benefit of Ceph RBD.

source admin-openrc.sh
root@openstack-staging:/home/kevin# qemu-img convert focal-server-cloudimg-amd64.img focal-server-cloudimg-amd64.raw
