Update solidfire driver to support V6 endpoint

Registered by John Griffith on 2013-12-19

The SolidFire cluster will be releasing the V6 API endpoint with a number of new features that will need to be reworked in the existing driver. Also some of the default attributes surrounding attributes will change with V6. Specifically, on clones and snapshots the attributes will not be copied from the source to the dest, and the ability to specify attributes in the clone/snap commands will be exposed. This means it will not be necessary to do a modify volume to update attributes after a clone/snap when using V6, but instead we can/should just specify the attributes in the clone call itself.

Whiteboard

(smcginnis): Marking obsolete as this has been sitting out there for a long time. If this is still needed, please submit a new bp.

This will include a number of new items, ranked in order here on priority:
1. Bulk Volume API (direct push to SWIFT, S3, and other backend devices)
2. Replication (Optimized replication of dedpulicated data to remote SF cluster)
3. Current state snapshots creating delta-diffs for existing volumes and revert

Item 3 is invisible to end user currently, however it adds some signficicant efficiency improvements, and lays the groundwork for future additions for things like synchronized DB snapshots across multiple volumes.
