Review request for cloudstack, Girish Shilamkar and Prasanna Santhanam.


1. Removed few unwanted imports
2. Added default config dir path
3. Added config directory to 
4. Added config file path to be pickedup dynamically.

Repository: cloudstack-git


 Added Configuration Support to Marvin.
    1. It provides the basic configuration facilities to marvin.
    2. User can just add configuration files for his tests, deployment
                  etc, under one config folder before running their tests.
                  They can remove all hard coded values from code and separate
                  it out as config at this location.
                  Either add this to the existing setup.cfg as separate section
                  or add new configuration.
    3. This will thus removes hard coded tests and separate
                  data from tests.
    4. This API is provided as an additional facility under
                  cloudstackTestClient and users can get the
                  configuration object as similar to apiclient,dbconnection
                  etc to drive their test.
    5. They just add their configuration for a test,
                  setup etc,at one single place under configuration dir
                  and use "getConfigParser" API of cloudstackTestClient
                  It will give them "configObj".They can either pass their own
                  config file for parsing to "getConfig" or it will use
                  default config file @ config/setup.cfg.
    6. They will then get the dictionary of parsed
                  configuration and can use it further to drive their tests or
                  config drive
    7. Test features, can  drive their setups thus removing hard coded
              values. Configuration default file will be under config and as
    8. Users can use their own configuration file passed to
                  "getConfig" API,once configObj is returned.
Another such case where we are using sed or bash script is  in between a build run for replacing
hard coded ldap ip for region\setup specific. We can now change all parameters before run
under configuration, the test features will use configuration object and thus values, rather
hard coded strings which avoids replacement through shell script.

 Also, did few naming convention changes. Its better to follow uniform naming conventions.
Currently, wherever iam seeing a specific notation not followed. We are incorporating those

clean up of current config at places, making configuration required for marvin\tests unified
and available at one place and clean up of files\code related to it.

Basic check to retrieve configuration values is done.
