    Add CINDER_LOCALEDIR env variable

    Part of fixing bug #995287

    Syncs these two commits from oslo-incubator:

      Support overriding oslo localedir too
      Add a gettextutils.install() helper function

    to get a new gettextutils.install() function which allows the default
    localedir to be overwritten via an environment variable.

    Note that gettextutils.install() must be called before any other cinder
    modules are imported since some modules attempt to translate strings
    at import time (e.g. in cinder.flags). This is broken and inefficient,
    but fixing it involves adding something like sphinx's l_() function and
    would be very invaisve.
