[Crowbar] Ubuntu 11.10 support

Backporting would be non-trivial -- there have been lots of updates to the build system since 1.2 to enable Crowbar to easily support staging on multiple operating systems, and the Ubuntu 11.10 work builds on that.

For reference, the master branch currently has code to support:
* Redhat 5.6 (superceded by redhat-5.7)
* Redhat 5.7 (current Dell Hadoop deployes are on this)
* CentOS 5.7 (for use when you don't have redhat 5.7)
* Ubuntu 10.10 (current Dell Openstack/Swift installs use this)
* Ubuntu 11.04 (RCB uses this for their installs).
* Ubuntu 11.10 (no-one currently uses this)
* Redhat 6.2 (not complete yet, needed for next-gen Dell hardware support)

Are there plans to backport any of this to the current 1.2 version? I'd love to use Oneiric, but I don't necessarily want to start pulling the bleeding edge trunk versions or Crowbar

The Ubuntu 11.10 support I added in back in December is now complete.  You can now bring up fully functional admin and compute nodes staged on Oneiric with  Crowbar.  Openstack and Hadoop support has not been addressed, but most of the work involved should be around making sure that the right repositories are being pulled from.
