    Implement disabling of file-based storage · cb7c0198
    Iustin Pop authored
    Rationale: the file-based storage backend can add/remove files under a
    certain directory. However, the master node is also controlling the
    setting of the file-based root directory, so basically it means we can't
    prevent arbitrary modifications by the master of the node's filesystem.
    
    In order to mitigate this for setups where the file-based storage is not
    used, we introduce a new setting at ./configure time, that controls the
    enable/disable of file-based storage. Since this is not modifiable by
    the master (over RPC), it is now possible in this case to prevent
    unintended modifications of the node's filesystem from the master.
    
    The new setting is used in bdev.py to not expose the file-based storage
    at all, and in cmdlib.py to prevent attempts at creation of such
    instances.
