    CLOUDSTACK-8616: Redundant VPR with both routers as Master

    This PR contains some refactoring of the Python code used by the redundant routers and
also a fix for the intermittent problem when running the rVPC component tests.
    To summarise it:
    * If the KeepaloiveD configuration file changes, restart the service instead of reloading
    * Since we are configuring KeepaliveD/VRRP in no-preemptive mode, we no longer need priorities.
As a matter of fact, the Management Server was not sending priorities to the routers anymore.
The value used in the old configuration was defaulted to 99 in the Python code.
    * KeepaliveD and ConntractD, once configured in a router, will have a cronjob that will
run on reboot. So, the services will be restarted without the need to wait for the management
server to send some configuration and force a restart.
    * Installing KeepaliveD from Wheezy-Backports in order to have a newer version available.
    I already squashed few commits of this PR so we wouldn't have to go through simple fixes/typos
that happened during the tryouts. When opening the commits for review please note that the
commit messages also contain the messages of the squashed commits.
    Adding the cronjob to restart the KeepaliveD service on reboot helped to get a 60% success
rate with the tests. Before that, the tests were failing very often: 4 out of 5 times.
    I then added the "restart" when configuration changes instead of "reload". Once the change
was applied, I successfully executed the tests 13 times. That gives confidence.
    Tests can be executed with the following command:
    nosetests --with-marvin --marvin-config=[your_configuration_file] -s -a tags=advanced,required_hardware=true
    Since there were changes on marvin/ - in the previous PR, you will need to build/upgrade
your Marvin installation.
    @DaanHoogland @bhaisaab @remibergsma, could you please have a look at this PR?

    CLOUDSTACK-8616 - Removing the Priority form KeepaliveD configuration
       - We use no preempt mode with state set as EQUAL to both nodes, no need to have Priotities
       - Do not add IPs as comments to the configuration. If a new guest interface is added,
the file will change anyway.
         - This was used in the past when keepalived would restart for each new interface
       - Removed the long sleep form the tests: we now sleep 5 seconds per PF rule added
    CLOUDSTACK-8616 - Fix keepalived.ts/2 files comparison
       - Add call to set_fault() in case of router transits to that state
       - Removing commented out code
    CLOUDSTACK-8616 - Fixing
    CLOUDSTACK-8616 - Call set_fault from the script
