rm-object-dict-compat (for mitaka)

Registered by Ryan Rossiter on 2016-01-06

NovaObjectDictCompat is a class mixin for Nova objects to maintain the dict-like syntax from "ye olden days". This should get cleaned up so the objects can just be used as regular objects with dot syntax (or getattr/setattr). After clearing out all objects that use NovaObjectDictCompat, that class can be deleted.
