Adding Keystone URL to OpenStack External Providers

Summary

Enable to add keystone URL for OpenStack external providers that require authentication.

Current status

Currently, all OpenStack external providers like Neutron and Glance are using the same Keystone authentication URL stored in the KeystoneAuthUrl configuration value. The requirement is to add a URL field per such provider for setting that URL and enable diffrent OpenStack providers using diffrent Keystone authentication URLs

Detailed Description

In order to support multiple OpenStack external providers that use different Keystone URLs we should:

   * Add a auth_url field to the providers table
   * Add a new Authentication URL field to the New/Edit External Provider dialog under the Requires Authentication 
      checkbox, this field will be visible only for OpenStack providers.
   * Change code to take provider's Keystone URL from the auth_url column in he providers table rather than
      from the configuration KeystoneAuthUrl value
   * Provide upgrade script that populates auth_url for OpenStack external providers that have auth_required set
      to true from  the configuration KeystoneAuthUrl value
   * Remove configuration KeystoneAuthUrl key from  vdc_options 
   * Remove KeystoneAuthUrl from engine-config

Benefit to oVirt

Support multiple OpenStack external providers that use different Keystone URLs for authentication.
