User and project ids avaiable via the metadata/configdrive service

Registered by Joshua Harlow on 2014-03-15

Add user_id and project_id to the metadata and config drive service

It is typically useful for users of openstack to be able to use the project_id and user_id/user_name from
inside cloud-init (for example to install applications automatically for a given project_id). This change
introduces this concept to the openstack metadata which is exposed via the openstack metadata service and the config-drive (but does not expose it to the ec2 metadata service since no such concept is valid there).

The ec2 metadata service could support this, but what version of the ec2 metadata service provides such information?
