Add Support for building Windows Images

Registered by Om Kumar on 2014-02-05

Background
    OpenStack Ironic Service provides support for image based deployments to baremetal servers. This blueprint proposes adding Windows Image generation capability to diskimage-builder.

Windows Disk Image Builder
     A separate windows Disk image builder tool will be added to the Disk Image Builder project. This Windows tool runs on any Windows machine and generate VHD/QCOW2 image directly from an ISO without needing to standup a VM on Hypervisor. This tool uses windows native commands like ImageX, DISM, and Diskpart to generate disk images which can work for both VMs and Baremetal Servers. This is made possible by injecting user provided drivers using DISM while building the image.
