[Openstack] [Packagers] Adding psutils as a dependency for nova

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/17980/ adds psutils (packaged on
Ubuntu as python-psutils) as a dependency for nova. This (or something
very much like it) is required to traverse the process tree in the
is_parent_process() method in nova.utils. I need that functionality to
eliminate a race condition in the nbd mounter code.

Hopefully this isn't too painful for packagers. That review hasn't
landed yet, so its possible that things will change before it does,
but I wanted to provide as much notice as possible.
