libvirt: Select image type in runtime according to mapping parameter

Registered by Maxim Nestratov on 2015-10-20

Let nova compute be more flexible in selecting resulting image type rather than strictly during initialization via images_type configuration parameter. In this case, if a hypervisor is able to understand different types of images allow it to work natively with provided image without converting.

The spec for this was never approved for Pike so given we're 5 weeks from feature freeze for Pike I'm going to defer this to Queens. -- mriedem 20170722
