Launch computes as LXC containers

Registered by Jérôme Gallard on 2014-02-18

This BP aims to add compute LXC support to devstack.

We add a new environment variable : LXC_COMPUTE
If LXC_COMPUTE is not set (or = 0), devstack behave in a nominal state.
If LXC_COMPUTE = n, devstack deploys n compute(s) in LXC environments.
The implementation of this BP will use "extras hooks" provided by devstack.
Following stepts will be implemented:
    - install LXC
    - create an LXC template for the compute
    - configure and start a first compute
    - if more than one compute are requested: clone the LXC container, configure and start them
