VMware: Enable setting memory, disk and vnic limits (partial)

Registered by Gary Kotton on 2015-09-28

Currently the VMware driver enables setting CPU limits and shares. The Blueprint extends that to enable setting the following limits: and shares:
- disk (http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-60/index.jsp#com.vmware.wssdk.apiref.doc/vim.vm.device.VirtualDisk.html)
- memory (http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-60/index.jsp#com.vmware.wssdk.apiref.doc/vim.vm.ConfigSpec.html#field_detail)
- vnic (http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-60/index.jsp#com.vmware.wssdk.apiref.doc/vim.vm.device.VirtualEthernetCard.html)

In Liberty we added memory and disk support. We still need to add vnic support and support for flavor updates.

Marking as partially complete. I had to defer the image parts, as part of Feature Freeze. --johnthetubaugy 2016.02.08
