API needed to allocate and return an extra IP for a container

Bug Description

We need an explicit MAAS API call that juju can use to request an additional IP address on a MAAS DHCP managed network, so we can use the address returned by the call to assign it to a new container. I know this happens automatically now, but in order to support both EC2 and MAAS (and other clouds) in the same juju networking model, we need an explicit API call.

In juju, there will be a method like instance.AllocateAddress(networkName) (address, error), which the providers incl. maas and ec2 will need to implement.

The way that containers are sprung up inside nodes will have to significantly change I think, because juju is expecting them to behave like maas-controller nodes, but maas doesn't know anything about them.
