Move the runas user at execution time

Everything still works the same way, but the user is calculated each
time we start kvm, rather than stored in the config file. This makes it
easier to implement the "pool" security model.

Extend the hypervisor API with name-only shutdown

Currently the ShutdownInstance method of the hypervisors takes a full
instance object. However, when doing instance shutdowns from the node
only, we don't have a full object, just the name.

To handle this use case, we add a new ‘name’ argument to the method,...

KVM: Check instances for actual liveness

Currently if we find a live process with the pid we saved we assume kvm

KVM: remove unused variable

We don't need the pwentry when checking if a username exists, just to be
sure the KeyError is not returned. Remove the variable, and thus shut up

KVM: add security model and domain parameters

Initially we only support the "user" model (in which the user running
the virtual machine can be specified as an additional parameter).

We use usernames rather than uids in this mode, because the kvm -runas
flag doesn't support uids anyway, and we check the passed username for...

KVM: Remove boot restriction for paravirtual nics

Newer virtio can boot from the network perfectly well, so there's no
point in keeping this restriction in place. This will still fail on
older kernels.
