Story points:


When adding shell nodes, we want to register them to Arvados at creation time. This can be done running

arv --format=uuid virtual_machine create --virtual-machine '{"hostname":"shell.ClusterID.example.com"}

using the SystemRootToken.

When the shell node finishes deployment, the command above should be run (verifying first that it does not already exist)

As this is an optional step that should be decided by the cluster Admin, we should only add this as an example.

Also, this can be done in different ways (ie, in a master/minion salt deployment, using the mine).

We can add an extra example state in the formula, which can then be added in the shell role by the provision script.

Related to shell nodes, it would be extremely useful if sudo could be set up to support the same PAM config as webshell, so that users can use valid Arvados tokens to authenticate to sudo.
