    CLOUDSTACK-8854: Apple Mac OS/X VM get created without USB controller in ESXi hypervisors

    CLOUDSTACK-8854: Apple Mac OS/X VM get created without USB controller in ESXi hypervisors
    
    Problem Description: CloudStack doesn’t add a USB controller to the Apple Mac OS X VMs
created in ESXi hypervisors. But, vSphere Client, by default, adds a USB Controller to the
Mac OS VMs. Mac OS X machines require USB Controller for USB mouse and keyboard access.
    
    Root Cause: The Guest OS details are specified in the Virtual Machine Configuration Spec
for creating the VM (using the SDK API) in the EXSi hypervisor. No USB Controller is added
to the Virtual Machine Configuration Spec. As the guest OS Identification details are specified
in the VM Configuration Spec, It is assumed that the Create VM SDK API would create the defaults
in the VM same as vSphere Client. But, as per the observation, USB Controller is not added
to the Guest OS - Mac OS VM created through the SDK API.
    
    Resolution: When the Guest OS is Apple Mac OS, Add the USB Controller (EHCI+UHCI - Mac
supported) to the Virtual Machine Configuration Spec before Creating or Starting the VM. For
any existing Mac OS VMs, Stop and Start to add the USB Controller. For new VMs with Mac OS,
USB Controller is added automatically.
