Cumulative CPU time not implemented

Bug Description

The nova-powervm driver claims 'complete' for:

title=Guest instance status
notes=Provides a quick report on information about the guest instance,
  including the power state, memory allocation, CPU allocation, number
  of vCPUs and cummulative CPU execution time. As well as being
  informational, the power state is used by the compute manager for
  tracking changes in guests. Therefore this operation is considered
  mandatory to support.

However, "cumulative CPU execution time" would be reported via InstanceInfo.cpu_time_ns, which is currently set to 0 and never updated [1].

There's a couple of questions here:
- Is this attribute mandatory to claim 'complete' for the operation?
- To what level is it even possible for us to calculate this?
  - Does PCM report a total-since-birth for an LPAR?
  - Does that total get reset at events like LPAR reboot? Live migration? REST server restart?

Need to look at how the other drivers handle this and make some attempt at parity.

    Trim the fat from InstanceInfo

    Nova removed several fields from InstanceInfo that were not being
    used [1]. This copies our corresponding in-tree driver changes to
    the out-of-tree driver.
