Ok - because you said the following to Rohit on this thread, I changed marvin
to allow POST only in the body and the rest of the args as params in the url
GET-style. Is it something you decided against later?  

Yes, the POST will be handled by ApiServlet's doPost() only, and the userdata
will need to be put into the POST body.

I'm ok with your implementation however and have applied it with changes to
your test. I also added an additional test to do the userdata via GET. The
tests will run on both devcloud and simulator. 

These are the rebased commits on master:

b0caae6b33347f36721f28dca1fa12e7b18f1cd1 CLOUDSTACK-1086: DeployVirtualMachine userdata enhancements

~/workspace/cloudstack/incubator-cloudstack(branch:master) ยป nosetests --with-marvin --marvin-config=setup/dev/advanced.cfg
test/integration/component/ --load --pdb
Test userdata as GET, size > 2k ... ok
Test userdata as POST, size > 2k ... ok

Ran 2 tests in 15.791s


I have another related request on how to handle this for marvin, apidocs and
cloudmonkey. Will raise a separate thread on that.
