Metadata Service Enhancements: Callbacks + Network

Building on set-password, provide a generic mechanism to set (but not overwrite) server metadata, so we can have a way to communicate with in guest actions. The existing user quotas on metadata should still apply.

Example use case: set "boot_complted_seconds=20" when looking to profile your actual boot times

Networking Information:

Lets look at improving the networking info given in both config drive and the metadata service to instances.

This would turn into a neutron API proxy, but it seems messy to have two metadata service API endpoints for users of openstack, so maybe this is the best trade-off? We could look at moving it into neutron, with neutron just proxying the nova information, but that makes config drive much harder to implement.

Example use case: have first interface configure via DHCP, but have other interfaces on private networks, and static configured.
