Bug Description

There seem to be some underlying problems with deleting volumes in an error state in nova, but the delete action should still be shown on our end...

It turns out this is semi-intentional. The nova volume API is currently broken and doesn't support deleting volumes that are not in an "available" state. This leaves a really nasty UX problem, however. Not good.

POTENTIAL SOLUTION (as proposed by John P.): put the button into a disabled state.

    Volume delete action cleanup.

      * Shows the table-level delete action.
      * Shows the delete action for error'd volumes, but disables the
        button and adds a tooltip explaining why it can't be deleted.
        Thanks to Tres and John for the suggestions. Fixes bug 953581.
      * Links up the volume name in the volumes table to the volumes
        detail page. Fixes bug 953469.
