Hmm, so the schema for 'chap' auth is utterly awful.

While we have parsed this schema for a while, nothing in the libvirt
codebase has ever used 'chap' auth.

As such I think we have reasonable grounds for just discarding the
existing code for parsing 'chap' auth and doing it right. ie use
the same terminology as 'ceph' and do not include the 'password'
value in the XML at all.

Thoughts ?
