Nova API doesn't return instance security groups

Bug Description

The EC2 API was updated in response to bug 802046 to return the security groups associated with an instance. Unfortunately, the Nova API didn't get that change, and so it is currently not possible to retrieve just the security groups associated with an instance.

The Nova API should return relevant security groups in the details view.

If we add security group info in the detailed servers list, the security group should have a "id" and a "href" link.

If I create the "href" link the url is "http://<host>:<port>/v2/<tenant_id>/security_group/<id>

However, this is wrong since the security group API is an extension.

Should the security group API be kept as an extension or may I move it to the core?

I spoke with several other devs who agreed that security groups will probably be moved back into core at some point. I don't know if a patch to do that as part of this change would be accepted, or if that needs to wait for a larger refactor.

I don't think this is a duplicate of 918830; 918830 is "security_group => servers", this is "servers => security_groups". I need this functionality, so I'm coding a simple patch that is complementary to the patch proposed for 918830.

Fix proposed to branch: master

I did submit a sg=>servers patch a while ago but it got refused because sg's will be a core function on API V3.

Therefore it was suggested that I implement this on the sg extension for the time being.

Thanks - I did see your patch, and I hope sg will be in core and we can use your patch. I needed server => sg "today" though, so I implemented just that in a simple way.
