Code missing from error message when quota-breaching instance launched via OS API

Bug Description

When an instance launch is attempted via the OpenStack API, but the instances quota is already fully utilized, the error message in the 413 overLimit response is not correctly marshalled:

 {u'overLimit': {u'message': u'Quota exceeded: code=%(code)s', u'code': 413, u'retryAfter': 0}}

The 'code=%(code)s' string lacks parameter subsititution so is unclear as to the actual quota that has been breached (e.g. it could be floating IP as opposed to instance stravation).

Whereas when attempting the instance launch via the EC2 API, the correct code is included in the 413 response:

  Quota exceeded: code=InstanceLimitExceeded

    Sub in InstanceLimitExceeded in overLimit message

    Fixes bug 950768

    Previously the error message in the 413 overLimit response returned
    by the OS compute API was missing a parameter subsitution indicating
    the actual quota that was breeched:

      'Quota exceeded: code=%(code)s'

    This is now properly reported as:

      'Quota exceeded: code=InstanceLimitExceeded'

    Also a potentially useful log message is no longer discarded.
