Remove undercloud install dependence on elements in favor of puppet and python code

Registered by James Slagle on 2016-04-21

The undercloud installer, instack-undercloud, currently uses a mix of python code, puppet manifest, and dib elements. During the Kilo cycle, a lot of progress was made moving most of the OpenStack services from their element version to using puppet instead. Since that was the bulk of the work, we've kind of delayed getting rid of the rest of the element dependencies.

During Newton, we should aim to remove all dependencies on elements in favor of puppet. For the UI aspect (config, cli, etc), we can continue to use python (the instack_undercloud module).
