Bug Description

The client is no longer able to detect when it's running on an openstack instance. This is the current detection code:

            if "QEMU Virtual CPU" in cpuinfo:
                return "kvm"

Turns out that string is nowhere in that file when running on an openstack instance:
# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 15
model name : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7700 @ 2.40GHz
stepping : 11
microcode : 0x1
cpu MHz : 2532.612
cache size : 4096 KB
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 10
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss syscall nx pdpe1gb rdtscp lm constant_tsc up rep_good nopl pni pclmulqdq vmx ssse3 cx16 sse4_1 sse4_2 popcnt aes hypervisor lahf_lm
bogomips : 5065.22
clflush size : 64
cache_alignment : 64
address sizes : 40 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
power management:

As a result, clients running on openstack will register as physical machines, and not virtual ones.

summary: - Client sends an empty vm-info message when running on an openstack
- instance
+ Openstack instances register as real machines instead of virtual ones
