Alex asks why it is difficult to change in cloud-setup-database script?

No difficulties really, I just lost passion, inspiration, motivation
to work on these pieces; I'm not a codemonkey I never wanted to work
on the devcloud, refactoring, systemvms, dbcreator but I did n't I do
a non-bad job? I could n't keep up with online and offline BS, I've
already resigned from Citrix and currently wrapping up work, working
with formalities, selling my stuff so I can pay back about "two months
salary" to the company due to their ridiculous policies as I'm leaving
before a year...

In future I would be a casual contributor, who may or may not work on
difficult pieces of CloudStack during his free time :P

Alex and others, jyfi the commit in DatabaseCreator that would apply
upgrade paths was introduced after the code freeze, before code freeze
it could just deploydb that's all.

So, I broke up the development in two phases, refer to the wiki please;

- For 4.1: we revert create-schema etc. so it's same as 4.0; the
upgrade paths would be applied by management server. It was a

- For 4.2: databasecreator would deploydb 4.0 schemas and apply
upgrade paths. CloudStack management server

It's fine for 4.1, unless we've community consensus to have the
discussed commits.
