Support remove a nova compute from nova compute

Registered by Guangya Liu (Jay Lau) on 2013-06-03

Current in openstack, there is no command to remove a nova compute node from openstack cluster. So if customer do not want to use the nova compute, then once nova compute service was down on this node or this node was re-provisioned, "nova service-list" or "nova-manage service list" still show the node.

It is better that introduce a new REST API to remove nova compute.
