Move the glossary to a separate file

Currently we have an insignificant glossary at the end of the design-2.0
document. This patch moves it to a separate file with the goal that it
will grow and all files can refer to it.

Glossary
========
Since this document is only a delta from the Ganeti 1.2, there are
some unexplained terms. Here is a non-exhaustive list.
.. _HVM:
HVM
hardware virtualization mode, where the virtual machine is oblivious
to the fact that's being virtualized and all the hardware is emulated
.. _LU:
LogicalUnit
the code associated with an OpCode, i.e. the code that implements the
startup of an instance
.. _opcode:
OpCode
a data structure encapsulating a basic cluster operation; for example,
start instance, add instance, etc.;
.. _PVM:
PVM
para-virtualization mode, where the virtual machine knows it's being
virtualized and as such there is no need for hardware emulation
.. _watcher:
watcher
``ganeti-watcher`` is a tool that should be run regularly from cron
and takes care of restarting failed instances, restarting secondary
DRBD devices, etc. For more details, see the man page
``ganeti-watcher(8)``.
