VMware: Add a separate role for Cinder with VMDK backend

Registered by Andrey Danin on 2014-12-18

Feature Lead: Igor Gajsin
Design reviewers: Igor Zinovik, Stepan Rogov
Mandatory reviewers: Sergii Golovatyuk
QA: Oleksandr Kosse
Developers: Igor Gajsin, Andrey Danin

When vCenter is used as a hypervisor it can use volumes only from Cinder VMDK.
And vise versa: KVM as a hypervisor cannot mount volumes from Cinder VMDK.
In case of Multi-HV support with both vCenter and KVM Compute nodes deployed
it's necessary to deploy Cinder with multiple backends - VMDK plus LVM/Ceph.
A new role "Cinder with VMDK" should be introduced to provide this opportunity.
