Informational cinder extra specs list items

Registered by Prateek Goel

Cinder extra specs list items are defined to match the items exposed by the backend drivers during the cinder capabiities_filter operation. This means we cannot specify anything extra in this specs-list which does not match the drivers exposed items. In case where you have multiple storage backends with varying qos or created for special purpose can only be differentiated by giving them unique name defining the properties of storage. This will lead to big and complex names of cinder types.
In the bp I propose to create support of having informational items in cinder extra specs list and in capabilities-filter let it find and match the items which the driver exposes.
