Support Remote VirtualBox virtual machines as bare metals

Registered by Ramakrishnan G (rameshg87) on 2014-12-09

This change proposes to add a new power and management interface for Ironic which manages remote VirtualBox using Webservice. The main use case is for helping developers running windows on their machine, to test their changes by creating VMs for testing on Windows itself, and managing them over Webservice from within another VM running Ironic.
