This patch adds the new network infrastructure. It removes the existing
Network.py and adds XenDevice.py and NetConfig.py. This patch basically
adds the same functionality we had, but makes it much much easier. It
also allows people to configure a range of IPs for a bridge environment,
done when xm-test is configured. 

This patch creates a new XenDevice and XenNetDevice to work with
devices. These new objects should only be reverenced through XenDomain
methods. Until support for attaching and detaching devices in xm-test is
added, XenDevices must be added prior to starting a domain.

Support for DHCP and routed or NAT environments will be added later. 

All comments welcome.
