PowerVM Compute Driver Nova Integration

Registered by Drew Thorstensen

Integrate the PowerVM out-of-tree Virt Driver to Nova in-tree.

This blueprint proposes taking the out-of-tree nova-powervm driver and taking a subset of use cases to integrate into an in-tree driver. This is meant to be the first blueprint on a path to support PowerVM in tree as a supported driver.

I'm going to close this out for the Pike release. The major changes we wanted to get in are done. There are some random other changes up for review but they are basically WIP or in need of updates at this point, but the nova team needs to focus review efforts on other blueprints so anything else we want to get into the PowerVM driver for feature parity should wait for Queens. -- mriedem 20170707
