Default Add virt-install --import option

Hi all,

The followin patches add a new option to virt-install: --import. The
option wraps a new installer, which is used to build a guest around an
existing disk image, skipping the OS install step.

The patches are:

1 - Add new ImportInstaller class
2 - Add virt-install --import option

Any comments appreciated.

Thanks,
Cole

Default Add virt-install --import option

This patch adds the --import option to virt-install. --import is a new
install method, which arranges for the guest to boot off the first
specified storage device.

So, given an existing disk image '/home/user/myvm.img', an example
command line could be:

virt-install --name myvm --ram 512
--disk path=/home/user/myvm.img --import

Thanks,
Cole
