config drive improvements [config-drive-v2]

Registered by Scott Moser on 2012-04-27

At folsom design summit [1,2], we discussed improvements for config drive, with the basic goal of
 a.) basically dumping the metadata service data into a file/directory
     structure on the config drive
 b.) adding an 'openstack/' metadata directory, that would at this
     point have network information (possibly in netcf format)
