      Added sched_reserve. Works kind of like sched_reload, but for a reservation. · e1f4263c

      Rob and I noticed that when we need to do maintainance to a node, its hard
      to grab it when it gets freed before it gets taken again. So this will allow
      admins to set up nodes so that when the current owner frees them, they
      immediately are moved into another experiment. For instance, if I need to do
      an upgrade on all the machines in the testbed, I can do:
      
      sched_reserve testbed down pc1 pc2 pc3 [...] pc40
      
      and it will immediately reserve any free nodes, skip any that are already
      in testbed/down, and add an entry to the next_reserve table for any nodes
      that are already reserved. Then nfree checks for entries in the next_reserve
      table before it lets any nodes go (much like it does for the reloads table),
      and moves them into the expt before it can get reserved again. So we can
      guarantee that the next time a node is freed, it will be saved for us.
      
      Note that this can also be useful to accumulate nodes for a large experiment,
      since you can make sure you get them as soon as the current owner is done.

      Added info about capture.rc, thanks to Rob. I'm not sure if the stuff about proxyDHCP is up to date, since someone might have made that come from the database instead.
