XenAPI: Resize ephemeral disks

Registered by John Garbutt on 2013-09-17

Currently, ephemeral disks are dropped and re-created.

However, now migrate has started moving ephemeral disks, resizes with ephemeral disks have been disabled:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/xenapi-migrate-ephemeral-disks

This blueprint looks to bring back the resize of instances when there are ephemeral disks attached.

Given resize down is so fragile, consider not dealing with resize down.
