Add Ironic instance shellinabox console support

Registered by Zhenguo Niu on 2016-04-07

Summary
=======
Currently Ironic use shellinabox to provide a web serial console, and there's
a BP in nova to add a custom HTTP proxy for that, so this is intended to integrate
the new console type with Horizon.

Motivation
========
Operators need to use console to operate Bare Metal instances like VMs.

Description
=========
Add a new console type option 'shellinabox' for ironic instances, then nova
get_serial_console api will choose to pass 'serial' or 'shellinabox' to fetch the
console url and show in the console tab.

UX
===
None

==================
Functionality is being implemented in Nova and Ironic:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ironic/+bug/1526371

Doc Impact
