Bring GPFS support images_type

Registered by renminmin on 2014-02-19

The main goal is to provide an alternative backend store for the ephemeral disk image. This blueprint proposes the use of copy-on-write function provided by GPFS to quickly generate the snapshot of instance regardless of the image format, when user select the GPFS as the instances store. This is usually managed by the flag 'images_type'. At the moment, only raw, qcow2, lvm, rbd are supported.
