add functional test for nova volume-attach bug

This is a functional test that boots a server via the cli, creates a
volume, and tries to attach it via the cli (which causes a failure due
to completion cache code). Note: the failure actually happens *after*
the attach command is dispatched, so the volume attach will still
work, the user is presented an error though.

Many TODOs remain for future patches. The test also tries to document
what was learned about the CLI redirection to cinder API, which was
introduced when Cinder was split out, but was tribal knowledge that
was lost in the mists of time.

def test_attach_volume(self):
"""Test we can attach a volume via the cli.
This test was added after bug 1423695. That bug exposed
inconsistencies in how to talk to API services from the CLI
vs. API level. The volumes api calls that were designed to
populate the completion cache were incorrectly routed to the
Nova endpoint. Novaclient volumes support actually talks to
Cinder endpoint directly.
This would case volume-attach to return a bad error code,
however it does this *after* the attach command is correctly
dispatched. So the volume-attach still works, but the user is
presented a 404 error.
This test ensures we can do a through path test of: boot,
create volume, attach volume, detach volume, delete volume,
