Whiteboard

The feature is going to be implemented on a phased-approach.

Add powervm driver skeleton with spawn, destroy, get_info, list_instances, power_on and power_off methods implementation as well as unit tests for those. The driver will initially support IVM managed systems and file based deployment.
