A rewrite of LUClusterVerify

Per issue 90, current cluster verify is very very brittle. It's one of
the oldest pieces of code, with only additions without cleanups over the
last years.

Among its problems:

- data initialization interspersed with verification of RPC results,
leading to non-initialized data for some branches
- due to the above, we order strictly some checks and we have the case
where a bad node time result will skip checking of node volumes
- many many local variables, with each new check adding a new dict,
leading to a spaghetti of dicts in the main Exec function
- monolithic code, both Exec() and _NodeVerify() do a lot of
independent checks

This patch does an imperfect rewrite, but at least we gain:

- a clear infrastructure for adding more checks (the new NodeImage
class, with it's clear and documented fields), and removal of most
per-node dicts from the Exec() function
- the new NodeImage object should allow better type safety, e.g. by
allowing pylint to check the actual object attributes rather than
strings as dict keys
- a-priori initialization of data fields, eliminating the need to
introduce dependencies between checks
- per-result-key status field, allowing elimination of duplicate error
messages (where we want)
- split of most independent checks into separate functions, for greater

The new code, being new will probably introduce for the short term more
bugs than it removes. However, it should offer a much better way for
extending cluster verify in the future.
