Ticket #1605 (closed defect: fixed)

IPA modifies various configuration files and starts/stops services on both server and client sides. These configuration files may be installed in different places and services may use different mechanisms for actual start/stop process.
Refactor FreeIPA code to allow abstracting all calls to external processes and dependencies on modification of system-wide configuration. A platform provider would give its own implementation of those methods and FreeIPA would use it based on what's built in packaging process.
