JCLOUDS-223: Implement token based auth in Abiquo

Properly implemented token based authentication. An initial request
is performed using Basic Authentication to request an authentication token.
Subsequent requests will use the obtained token to authenticate, and once
it expires a new one will be automatically requested.

>             Project: jclouds
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: jclouds-labs
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
>            Reporter: Ignasi Barrera

>              Labels: abiquo
>             Fix For: 1.7.0
> Currently there are two ways to authenticate against the Abiquo API:
> * Using Basic Authentication.
> * Using an authentication token.
> The first one can be used to perform any request to the Abiquo API, but it is not the
recommended way to interact with it. Instead, a better way to d that is to use basic auth
to perform a login request and get an authentication token, and then use that token in the
subsequent requests to the API.
> Currently jclouds supports authenticating with the token, but the context must be created
with it and it is not automatically obtained. This should be an automatic and transparent
process, similar to the OpenStack authentication module [1].
