Support unikernel-based applications

Registered by Michael Le on 2016-05-02

Support launching of unikernel-based applications on OpenStack through Solum.
Application will be automatically compiled and linked with appropriate kernel components
to create a unikernel image. The unikernel construction will be done through a unikernel Language Pack.
The resulting executable unikernel image will be uploaded to Glance and will use Nova to boot
the unikernel. Plan to first support unikernels that can run on kvm/qemu (rumprun and solo5).
