patch for noVNC password option
In UCS 3 exist a UCR variable "xen/vnc/password" to set a password for the web noVNC console.
This option is missing in UCS 4 under qemu/KVM.
I added this option in /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf with the attached patch.

OK: Configure passwort
OK: works with noVNC + external VNC viewers
Reopen: Please clarify the UCR documentation. In my tests the behavior was as follows:
.Set global password per UCR: A password configured for an individual instance has to be entered for a VNC connection for this instance. This means that VNC is not deactivated globally is an empty string is configured for UCR uvmm/kvm/vnc/password.
The current ucr doc reads like a per instance password is only possible if the global password is not set.
Maybe mention that everybody can read UCR therefore one should not store valuable passwords in UCR.
