KVM virsh console

Add virsh console support for templates and KVM hypervisors. This would add the ability to fix the VS if there is an error in boot config or kernel image.

    This is exactly what we are asked for.

    As I see there are two bits that we need to implement.
    1) Enable serial virsh console on templates (changes in grub)
    2) Enable serial virsh console on the KVM hypervisor side (changes in XML)
    After this is implemented using SSH on the Compute Resource it will be possible to access the VS like “virsh console <vm-name>”

    We would like to hear some feedback before we implement this.
