[libvirt] [PATCH 1/5] Public API to allow defining new domain using OVA file



Appends a new API to libvirt public driver that supports
defining a new domain using OVA format.

API expects following inputs:
1. connection pointer.
2. path to OVA package (single file format).
3. Storage pool name where new domain needs to be created.

API returns pointers to newly created domain that is not powered ON.

Libvirt driver sanitizes the inputs and calls hypervisor specific
driver callbacks to abstract OVA install implementation.
