Flavor extra spec and image properties validation

Registered by Jack Ding

Validate the combination of the flavor extra-specs and image properties as early as possible once they're both known (since you can specify mutually-incompatible changes in the two places). If validation failed then synchronously return error to user. We'd need to do this anywhere the flavor or image changes, so basically instance creation, rebuild, and resize.

Notes from the Stein PTG discussion about this:

Flavor extra spec and image properties validation
- ensure that the combination of flavor extra-specs and image properties makes sense, if not then synchronously return error to user
- StarlingX just validated the flavor extra-specs, but there was previously talk of validating the combo of flavor/image a bit further down the stack once we know both of them.
- would need to validate any time either the flavor or image changed--boot/rebuild/resize
--There's a related issue wrt how we determine which of image extra specs/flavor metadata take priority. It's all over the shop right now
- Caveat: this does depend on the virt driver to be maximally robust. But there are things that don't require driver-specific knowledge that we could do without calling down to the driver.
- Wouldn't it be simplest to start by having flavor extra spec schema validation in the API for *known* extra specs, but with additionalProperties=True for out of tree stuff.
- AGREE: validate what we can that is not driver-specific
