Whiteboard

Need a good bit of detail added to the BP here, but based on conversations sounds like we're on the right track.

See linked spec (http://wiki.openstack.org/Cinder/FibreChannelSupport)

Added the implementation details to the spec on this blueprint. I also added a nova blueprint (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/libvirt-fibre-channel) for the compute side changes to support FC.
