    A set of changes to implement dynamic root passwords on local nodes · bac0172e

    (and vnodes). Each time a node is allocated to an experiment it gets a
    new root password (using the node_attributes table). The watchdog has
    a new section that resets the root password (defaults to hourly).  We
    still using a common password in the image to avoid totally bricking
    ourselves, but once a node boots into an experiment it gets a new root
    password.
    
    This prevents hundreds of nodes with the same password, and all of the
    problems associated with that.
