[collectd] Proposed patch for the vserver plugin

Here is the first shot at a patch I propose to use the vserver name 
instead of the context id in the vserver plugin. This patch will create 
/var/lib/collectd/vserver-name directories instead of 
/var/lib/collectd/vserver-ctxnumber. This is a necessity to make 
collectd usable when using dynamically assigned context ids.

The code of the patch I propose is working, but adds a dependancy on 
libvserver (https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/util-vserver/). The 
configuration system thus needs to be changed, but autoconf is a little 
bit too complex for me :-)

Here is what I would like to add (or to be added) into the built system :

- A check for the presence of /usr/includes/vserver.h
- Make the building of vserver.so dependant upon vserver.h and libvserver.so
- Linking vserver.so to libvserver.so (-lvserver)

Once this patch is completed (and if accepted), I intend to integrate 
the display of collectd's RRD files into vsmon :
