    Add user defined extra capabilities

    Provide a mechanism that will allow sys admins who are managing cinder
    installations with multiple backends to assign key/value pairs to
    backends. The key/value pairs can be used by the capabilities scheduler
    to select between backends when requests specify volume types.

    For example a sysadmin could specify the key 'service_level' with the
    values 'high', 'medium' and 'low' for different backends. The sys admin
    specifies the 'service_level' for each backend in cinder.conf as a json
    string, for example:

The config option itself is documented in doc/common/tables/cinder-api.xml, do we need further documentation or is this enough?

indeed. Cinder option text should probably be updated

    Expand the description of extra_capabilities

    The existing description of extra_capabilities was a bit terse,
    meaning deployers couldn't easily gauge the power of this option.
    This patch expands the textual description using information from
    the blueprint and original commit message, so it can be picked
    up automatically by the documentation.
