Fill the gap for instance action records

Registered by Zhenyu Zheng on 2017-09-21

Instance action records are really useful for auditing, but yet some
of the important actions does not trigger instance action recording.

As disgussed in Queens PTG, we are agreed to fill the gap for
instance action records [1].

Workflows that currently missing action recording:

* attach/detach interfaces
* attach/detach volumes
* swap volumes
* createBackup
* createImage
* lock/unlock
* shelveOffload

Whiteboard

These generally look OK to me. The attach interface/volume ones aren't technically server "actions" per the actions API:

https://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/compute/#servers-run-an-action-servers-action

But they are useful to track for things happening to a server when they are asynchronous, and we've already kind of set a precedent with the extend_volume action added in the Pike release.

I'll bring this up in the next Nova meeting on October 12th but I think this is OK as a specless blueprint.

Agreed in the Oct 12 nova meeting that this is OK without a spec. Approving for Queens. -- mriedem 20171012
