Add better config file and logging support for the scheduler

Registered by Paul Larson on 2011-07-28

Headline:
The LAVA scheduler daemon can now be started at init time, supports a config file, and keeps logs.

Acceptance criteria:
1. scheduler daemon should read from a config file in /etc, or optionally also from a config file under ~/.config
2. scheduler daemon should log to a file, rather than just dump output to the screen
3. scheduler daemon should start in init (upstart job)

Whiteboard

Status:
[pwlars 20110818] Acceptance criteria complete, and it can start in an upstart job but cannot be auto-started because it needs to reattempt connection to the db if the db isn't up when it tries to start. Remaining work items for that have been postponed here, and mwhudson already started another blueprint for that.
