    CLOUDSTACK-8272: Python based file-lock free password server implementat...

    Major changes:
    
    - VRs are single CPU, so Threading based implementation favoured than Forking based
    - Implements a Python based password server that does not use file based locks
    - Saving password mechanism is provided by using secure token only to VR (localhost)
    - Old serve_password implementation is removed
    - Runs with Python 2.6+ with no external dependencies
    - Locks used within threads for extra safety
    
    The aim for this is to improve password server by relying on a threading based approach
to minimize RAM usage and at the same time avoid using file based lock. For 4.5.1 and 4.6.0
