create a way to determine coverage of nova from external testing

Registered by Sean Dague on 2012-11-02

To better understand how Tempest and other external test tools exercise nova we should have a way to enable coverage reporting from within nova services by an external program for test runs. Once available in nova, tempest and devstack gate will be enhanced to make this a nightly runable report.
