Support adding description while locking an instance

Registered by Surya Seetharaman on 2019-02-21

Currently when locking a server using "nova lock <server>" there is no provision to set a description/mention a reason which is essential since its not possible to know why someone
locked the server which might be needed in situations when the person is not around to ask.

This bp proposes to add a "locked_reason" in the Instance table and then expose it via the
"nova show" request which currently only shows if the server is locked or not or via a new
``GET /servers/{server_id}/lock`` api.
