Add Instance Live Resize Functionality for Libvirt Driver

Registered by Fahri Cihan Demirci on 2016-04-08

There are cases when changing the resources allocated for an instance
is beneficial whereas doing so with a reboot may not be suitable for
the user's workflow. Currently nova does not allow such an action,
making a reboot necessary for changing the flavor of an instance. This
proposal aims to implement a live resize functionality for nova
Libvirt driver in order to dynamically change the flavor of an
instance without shutting it down.
