Separate the idea of clients and connections

Registered by Paul Larson on 2011-10-26

We would like to be able to add other client types besides linaro images, such as ssh or qemu or fast models. To support doing that, it would be useful if the device config could specify the client type. We should also take this opportunity to clean up the existing client code a bit.
