    New hypervisor implementation: chroot manager · 48297fa2

    This patch adds a new hypervisor implementation: a chroot manager. This
    hypervisor type can be used to manage (in combination with special OS
    definitions) the start and stop of chroot areas, and if used with drbd
    instances, it allows (via failover) the migration of chroots between
    This is a work in progress, and the way chroots should work is not very
    clear and does not fit very well in the OS definition framework.
    However, the hypervisor works and (if the sshd in the chroot is well
    configured) it allows login to the instance both via ssh and console as
    for a normal instance.
      - implement instance IP add/remove to/from the bridge, if the instance
        has a defined IP
      - investigate improvements to the OS API so that the create script has
        more information available, e.g. about the hypervisor type
      - mount extra disks in the chroot or alternatively refuse to start
        with more than one disk
