nova-api conflicts with nova-placement-api in newton on xenial

Bug Description

Upgraders using the consolidated nova-api binary are unable to install and configure the nova-placement-api prior to upgrade to Ocata; this results in a short period where instances creation will be broken (until the placement-api is configured and running).

[Test Case]
sudo apt install nova-api nova-placement-api
<conflict prevents installation>

[Regression Potential]
Low; change simply drops the Conflict stanza for nova-placement-api

[Original Bug Report]
While attempting to prepare for upgrade to ocata, I ran into an apt conflict between nova-api and nova-placement-api.

I've pushed a fix to the stable/newton branch of the nova package git repository; this fix will have to go in after the current set of SRU's clears proposed testing.

(Worth noting that the nova-placement-api package in newton uses the simple wsgi_script entry point for standalone binaries, not apache2+mod_wsgi as it does in later package releases - it is possible to configure for use with apache, but that's not done automatically).

This bug is still valid in the 14.0.7 release of nova

Hi Lars

Apologies; I intended that this go in with the latest set of point releases for Newton, and then missed this bug as there was no new point release for Nova at the time.

Uploaded and pushed to the -proposed testing area.
