This change replaces all uses of rootwrap with a trivial privsep-based equivalent. This replacement simply executes commands as the privsep user *without any additional checks*. There are 2 reasons why this is a reasonable thing to do: 1. We don't have a good workflow for merging rootwrap filter changes into parent projects (nova/cinder) for a loosely-coupled library like os-brick. 2. The previous situation was also insecure. The os-brick.filters rootwrap config permitted commands like "dd" and "cp" with any arguments, as root. This would have posed only a mild inconvenience to an attacker. With privsep we can at least (in principle) limit the commands to the privsep uid/gid and Linux capabilities (CAP_SYS_ADMIN by default with this change). This change addresses the urgency of (1). Later refactors will take greater advantage of privsep to address (2).

OpenStack Cinder brick library for managing local volume attaches
- Discovery of volumes being attached to a host for many transport protocols.
- Removal of volumes from a host.
Hacking on brick requires python-gdbm (for Debian derived distributions), Python 2.7 and Python 3.4. A recent tox is required, as is a recent virtualenv (13.1.0 or newer).
If "tox -e py34" fails with the error "db type could not be determined", remove the .testrepository/ directory and then run "tox -e py34".
