Move to data-based hvparam checks instead of code

Currently the hypervisor parameters are checked using hard-coded snippets in
each hypervisor. However, most parameter checks fall into three cases:
- file check
- directory check
- string value in a set...

Abstract Linux node information in hv_base

Currently both hv_fake and hv_kvm implement practically identical code
to get the node information. Since future container-like hypervisors
will also need this functionality, this patch moves it into the base
class (as a separate function) which can then be called from classes...

Remove the extra_args parameter in instance start

This patch removes the extra_args parameter and instead switches the
instance to the HV_KERNEL_ARGS hypervisor option.

This is a big change, but it's a needed cleanup, this extra parameter on
all RPC calls is not generic and we also need to have a persistent value...

GetShellCommand: get hvparams and beparams

Sometimes the hypervisor will use the instance hv and/or be parameters
to determine the best shell command. This is not possible, though,
currently, as the instance hv/beparams are not filled, so we have to
pass the filled versions separately....

KVM: implement GetShellCommandForConsole

This is a class method, because it calls _InstanceSerial, which is
another class method. The patch changes it to classmethod for all the
hypervisor classes.

Implement the new live migration backend functions

MigrationInfo, AcceptInstance and AbortMigration are implemented as
hypervisor specific functions, and by default they do nothing (as
they're not always necessary).

This patch also converts hv_base.MigrateInstance docstring to epydoc,...

Fix epydoc format warnings

This patch should fix all outstanding epydoc parsing errors; as such, we
switch epydoc into verbose mode so that any new errors will be visible.

Implement the new hypervisor API in base/xen

This patch adds the new methods CheckParameterSyntax and the
ValidateParameters in the base and xen hypervisors. It also changes the
xen hypervisor to use the new hvparams field on instance.

hypervisor: add live migration support

This is just the hypervisor-level migration (e.g. “xm migrate”) not the
whole node coordination work.
