Efficiently list and sort instances across multiple cells

Registered by Matt Riedemann on 2017-10-12

This is a specless blueprint for tracking the work done here:

https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:instance-list+(status:open+OR+status:merged)

This was discussed at the Queens PTG and the summary of that discussion is here:

http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2017-September/122209.html

The main points being:

1. List instances across multiple cells concurrently.
2. Merge sort the results honoring the requested sort keys and sort direction.

Whiteboard

There are some open changes for this still:

https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:instance-list+status:open

But the main changes for Queens have been complete since October 2017 and at this point it's too risky to try and rush the other stuff in, so I'm going to consider this complete for Queens and we can defer the other improvements to Rocky.
