Remove nova-xvpvncproxy

Registered by Stephen Finucane on 2019-10-10

XVP VNC consoles can only used by the XenServer virt driver. That same driver also supports noVNC consoles, and our XenServer experts tell us they no longer recommend using the XVP VNC consoles [1]. In addition, the nova-console service and 'os-consoles' APIs are only compatible with this server type and therefore are also unused. As a result, we can and should remove the nova-xvpvncproxy service, the nova-console service, and the 'os-consoles' API.
