Solaris OpenStack Horizon customizations

In Oracle Solaris OpenStack Havana, we have customized the Horizon BUI by modifying existing dashboard and panels to reflect only those features that we support. The modification mostly involves:

 --  disabling an widget (checkbox, button, textarea, and so on)
 --  removal of a tab from a panel
--  removal of options from pull-down menus

The following table lists the customizations that we have made.
