      nsfarm/lxd: remove exclusive devices and define all devices in image · 4f971f15
      Karel Koci authored and Karel Koci's avatar Karel Koci committed
      This removes concept of exclusive device. The only use of it was to pass
      exclusive access to network interface but that is not essentially
      required as it is even more versatile to use macvlan as thus we can
      easily spawn multiple containers to simulate network.
      The only known use for physical device pass trough and thus exclusive is
      Wi-Fi. It won't be possible to use macvlan for it. At the same time this
      is not an issue as it is not expected that we are going to be reusing
      this interface in single tests run multiple times over and over. In the
      end there is no need to automatically suspend containers to steal
      devices as it has been implemented (and in reality not finished).
      
      The introduced device management now required all devices to be defined
      in image as attributes. This gives image definition control over name of
      this device in container. It is up to container user to assign
      appropriate real device for it. This is done using device map that is
      simply pair of attribute and real device specifier. This concept can be
      in future expanded to even encode additional configuration if have need
      for it.
