Support for vanilla KVM

Foreman does have support, it uses the ruby-libvirt bindings (see
bundler.d/libvirt.rb). Check you have the foreman-libvirt package
installed, this will install the above config file and install the
requisite gem.

Once that's available it will let you select libvirt from the compute
resource type menu. It's the only CR type I believe that disappears
from the menu when the pre-req isn't installed. Maybe we should do this
for all of them, or none of them to make it less confusing?
