[Openstack-operators] [nova] can we deprecate the xvp console?

I noticed today that nova.console.xvp hits the database directly for 
console pools. We should convert this to objects so that the console 
service does not have direct access to the database (this is the only 
console I see that hits the database directly). However, rather than go 
through the work of create an object for ConsolePools, if no one is 
using xvp consoles in nova then we could deprecate it.

It looks like it was added back in diablo [1] (at least).

Someone from Rackspace in IRC said that they weren't using it, so given 
it's for xenserver I assume that means probably no one is using it, but 
we need to ask first.

Please respond else I'll probably move forward with deprecation at some 
point in mitaka-1.
