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

Problem Description: CloudStack doesnt 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.

> ISSUE
> ==================
> Apple Mac OS/X VM get created without USB controller. For mouse/keyboard to function
in CS Console window VM has to have USB controller. It seems CS doesn't use the same procedure
as native vSphere client because natively when OS is specified as OS/X vSphere always adds
USB controller to empty VM shell.
> EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
> ==================
> USB device added to VM when created on CS
> ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
> ==================
> No USB device added
