[openstack-dev] [ceilometer] deprecating pollster-list option

i'm proposing to deprecate/remove pollster-list config option. if you're 
like me and wondering what this is, we apparently support ability to 
filter pollsters loaded by polling agent[1].

the reason i'd like to deprecate is because we already have this 
functionality in the polling|pipeline.yaml where you define what meters 
you want to enable. having the ability to do it in two different places 
causes conflict/confusion and i think the yaml path is probably the one 
people know about and is the more logical path.

disclaimer: i also want to drop the pollster-list option because there's 
a bug[2] related to it and i personally don't think it's worth fixing it.
