Implement network reservation feature

Registered by Nikolay Starodubtsev on 2013-11-12

Summary
========

Support network reservation by adding new network resource-plugins.

Problem description
================

It is only "compute host" that can be reserved by Blazar for now. A variety of resources
should be supported by Blazar to improve the flexibility of resource reservation. A typical
one is "network."

Use Cases
---------------
- I want guaranteed access to 4 instances with 1 vCPU and 1GB of RAM and 10GB of disk
  and a guaranteed minimum bandwidth of 1Gbps between the instances.
  (Capacity management user story [2])

Proposed change
==============

Blazar basically respects extensibility by separating resource-plugins from other
components (e.g. manager, DB). A new "network-plugin" will be added to resource-plugins
to support network reservation.

What we have to do for the first is to define and classify network resources. Then decide
which resources to be handled by Blazar, and plan how to implement them.
