[Bug 932787] [NEW] nova-compute: euca-get-console-output returns no data

Public bug reported:

I have recently upgraded from Oneiric to Precise and noticed that 'euca-
get-console-output <instance>' no longer returns data.

Some investigation reveals that there may be a regression where the
libvirt template is set to log to a log file, but nova-compute is
reading a fifo. Comparing an Oneirc template against a Precise template
seems to confirm the difference.

Could you please fix the template so that libvirt will log to a fifo?

Instances that have been created seem to behave correctly, but only
their console output is unavailable.

Some investigations:

$ grep -c fifo /usr/share/pyshared/nova/virt/libvirt.xml.template 

$ grep log /usr/share/pyshared/nova/virt/libvirt.xml.template
            <source path='${basepath}/console.log'/>

$ dpkg-query --show nova-compute
nova-compute    2012.1~e4~20120210.12574-0ubuntu1
