Support passthrough of USB device

Registered by boh.ricky on 2014-03-14

Currently, nova has supported feature of pci-passthrough, but hasn't supported usb-passthrough. There were a bp about it in https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/host-usb-passthrough but don't have progress by now.

As I know, some telecom and enterprise customers have requirement of usb-passthrough especially in private cloud. So I think maybe it's a good choice to provide this feature in openstack.
