Allow user to set and retrieve the server Description

Registered by Chuck Carmack on 2015-09-24

Users would like the ability to set the Description when creating server, edit the Description later, and retrieve the Description. A description column already exists in the database, so the change is to add a description parameter to the Create Server API, Update Server API, and nova boot CLI. The description needs to be returned on the Get Server Details API and nova show CLI.
