[libvirt] [PATCH 0/5] Add support to define new domain using an OVA package.



This patch aims to extend libvirt functionality to define new
domain using a given OVA package. The patch consist of multiple
commits divided mainly into two categories:

Infrastructure support:
-----------------------
Patch 1,2 and 5 lays the foundation work including:
1. Libvirt Public API support.
2. OVA file handling and parsing operations.
3. virsh command.

ESX specific implementation:
---------------------------
Patch 3 and 4 adds implementation support to define new domain
for a ESX hypervisor.

NOTE:
-----
During development of this patch, I have fixed two issues with
exisiting ESX hypervisor driver, they are posted as seperate
reviews:
1. https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2012-December/msg01377.html
2. https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2013-January/msg00007.html

Above patches are necessary for proper functioning of the proposed feature.
