Running nova-manage as the correct user is awkward

Bug Description

nova-manage should be run as the nova user. Having to type "sudo -u nova nova-manage" is really annoying. nova-manage should sort this out on its own. Something like reexecuting itself using sudo to the owner of nova.conf.

    Re-run nova-manage under sudo if unable to read conffile

    Having to manually sudo to the nova user to make things work is
    tedious. Make it so that if we can't read the conffile, we just
    re-exec under sudo.

    Fixes bug 805695
